In the foreground, one of six cubs in the Uchab River pride that we had the privilege of spending time with in August 2016. These are the offspring of two young females, “Missy” and “Cheeky” and their first litters sired by “Gretzky” and his brother, XPL 98 (the latter died of anthrax in January 2017 in the Uchab river).
