Early the next morning we drove to where we'd seen the dead zebra. It had rained hard the night before and the road was quite muddy. There was no sign of the baboons. But the lions had found the zebra carcass. They had killed the buffalo just a day before, and since they only hunt every two days or so, they probably weren't hungry. But the zebra was there for the taking.
We heard the call of several birds. The lionesses looked up. Other animals were interested in the zebra as well. But the lions weren't that hungry. They would have to move the carcass to a safe place where the animal wouldn't be devoured by other carnivores.
