What remains of a dead lioness.

This same lioness was observed two days previous to this photo feeding on a dead elephant with a pack of hyenas.

This lioness was 18 years old, she was well past her prime and surpassed the average life span of a wild lioness by a few years (they usually live around 10 – 14 years in the wild)

I’ve added a preview of the IGTV vid @donheynekephoto added to his feed after this photo went up. It’s just something you should watch if you’re at all interested in this particular course of events.

This IGTV video will be available in our story when this photo goes up.

The lion’s corpse was inevitably cleaned up/picked over by jackals, vultures and hyenas, she might even have shared the elephant kill with a few of those same hyenas a few days prior.

“Friends” become food real quick as circumstances shift.
