FEWER & FEWER LIONS
I’m a little confused about these boys?
Their numbers are dropping dramatically & I can only assume that is due to the lack of viable food? Thats not too surprising,only disappointing.
The thing that gets me is their behavior in the water! When they are in the water,they sometimes stick their flippers out of the water to warm up their extremities. The air is warmer than the water,so given this why don’t the silly buggers hop up the float where there’s lots of room & it’s much warmer??
Also,I noted something unusual. When they are on the float they are very voicetress with their barking & growling! I can hear them a mile away!
However,when they are in the water in these tight little groups,they are silent! It almost seems that these gregarious creatures have certain social rituals?
I also noted that when they get into these tight groups that they have their eyes closed for a good part of it. They seem to brush up against each other & move slowly as one,all the while keeping their flippers out of the water.
I’ll have to talk to a few local Biologists to see if they can enlighten me?
