Kisaru, a female cheetah who put Enonkishu on the map after raising 6 cubs in 2019, gave birth to a second litter in September near the same site she had her first litter. She emerged from her den with 4 cubs, but the next day was found with only 3 (Figure 1).
Barikoi, a male lion may have been usurped by some younger males (Figure 2). We are anxiously awaiting to see how it plays out.
Grey crowned cranes flocked to the spring below Memusi dam in groups as large as 253 (Figure 3).
