Cool cats go out on a limb

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

EVEN the kings of the jun­gle need to branch out on a tree change oc­ca­sion­ally.

And in Africa, an en­tire pride of lions de­cided to take a kip — 4m up a tree.

At least 15 of the beasts were caught on cam­era loung­ing on the branches of a sturdy tree in the Serengeti, Tan­za­nia.

But, while it might look as though they were us­ing the van­tage point to seek out prey, pho­tog­ra­pher Bobby- Jo Clow, from Dubbo, New South Wales, re­vealed the laid- back pride was ac­tu­ally try­ing to es­cape flies liv­ing in the long grass.
