PROTECTING THE YOUNG

While on a wildlife safari drive in Chobe National Park I saw an elephant with a young one. A lion suddenly appeared from the brush. The young elephant went into hiding in the brush behind the older elephant. The elephant and lion looked at each other but there was no confrontation, The lion walked away in the opposite direction.
