Well guys,

It all happened here in Kenya . A lioness christened "kamuniak" adopted and protected a baby oryx five times. It happened in the samburu game reserve right here in Kenya.

Scientists were baffled at this rare carnivore adopting a herbivore. No one has ever explained how this lioness could end up adpoting and taking care of a potential prey.

Any doubting Thomasses out there?

Regards,

Foxxy

Nah, it all makes sense to me. A lioness, an oryx or five....

Oryx... hmm what's that? The only Oryx I know of is in Oryx & Crake by Margrette Atwood (Spelling?). Great book.. don't remember a lion.

I don't get how it adopts the same thing five times... ?

I'll look it up I suppose.

I thought an Oryx was an indigestion pill.

Why would a lioness adopt a pill?

Easier to look after a Pill than a Cub

Yeah, but 5 of them?

They might be really difficult to swallow

I do, and they are quite tasteless to, which was a supprise

But did you swallow five of them? If not, maybe you should.

Only then will you know.
