Dala and Dingani
Thanks to the plentiful - if late - rains, all of the streams and rivers are now flowing through Antelope Park again. On yesterday's (1st February) walk, the 2Ds (Dala and Dingani) found a large pool of water to test their paws in. Some lions love water and will happily wade in, some absolutely detest it, while others don't care one way or another.
In the case of the Ds it would appear that Dala has no problem in getting her paws wet, but Dingani isn't quite as keen as his sister. Which Dala seemed to pick up on and use to her advantage. During a bout of play around the pool, Dala managed to corner Dingani between two rocks where there was only one way out... down and into the water. Unable to push his way back past his sister, Dingani lost his balance and slid down into the water.
The face says it all...
