Spotted hyena fishes a baby impala out of the drink.

Mid to late november is birthing season for impala.

They don’t consciously time it, but the pregnant impala of the herd tend to birth their offspring within a few days of each other, which is more effective than staggered birth in terms of survivability.

Its the same principle employed by sea turtles: lay a lot of eggs that will all hatch at the same time. Most hatchlings will not survive, but their sacrifice ensures that a smaller percentage will indeed make it to adulthood.

They basically overwhelm the offense (predators) – they can’t possibly kill all of their young, and the ones that slip through grow up to continue the cycle.
