February is the month to expect scenes of delight (newborns finding their feet)

HerdTracker update 19 Feb 2018 by Asilia Africa

February is the month to expect scenes of delight with newborns finding their feet and predators arriving to prey on the young.

It is not only the older, more-experienced predators who will have the chance to see through. They too have co-ordinated their birthing times to coincide with the birth of their prey so that their young also have the highest chances of survival.

With thousands of baby wildebeest running around, it is much easier for a mother cheetah, lion or leopard to find a meal for their hungry cubs as well as give them the opportunity to learn how to hunt for themselves by practicing on young calves before they have to go out and fend for themselves. Young cubs learn valuable lessons during this time which is crucial to their success.
