Exciting news… Rain has a new litter of cubs. We know she has been mating, and then disappeared for awhile. This is her new litter with the new males that were introduced last year. Today Charlotte (Lottie) found her in the western part of the Park with her newest litter. She was quite skittish so Lottie only briefly stopped and took a couple of images. In all it looks like 3 cubs but we cannot be 100% sure.
I am truly hoping she gets to raise them all this time. What an awesome mom Rain has been. This is her 4th litter since she was introduced to Pilanesberg in April 2014. Rain has had 4 litters in exactly 5 years! What an amazing accomplishment.
Stay safe Rain and thank you!
