A few images of lion females on YLoveBigCats.com (Kenya 2008).
I published a few shots of lions. Portraits taken in the Masai Mara park (Kenya). My prefered is the following one: If you click on the thumbnail image, you will enlarge it. And you may notice that the photographer (and its car) are appearing in the eye of the lion. 😉 But there are several…
Back from Masai Mara
After about 10 days out of France, I am back from the Masai Mara National Reserve (in Kenya). I brought back about 30 GB of wildlife photos (around 1700-1800 images) to be sorted out in the coming days. You can expect series of published images here on a regular basis.

Cheetahs and elephants roaming free in USA
Yesterday, we were speaking here about prehistoric big cats in places where they disappeared (e.g. Europe). Today, I want to point at a surprising proposal made by Josh Donlan. Recognizing that many big cats were roaming in North America tens of thousands of years ago, he want to re-introduce lions, cheetahs, elephants and other large…
Cheetahs, pumas and jaguars of Europe
Found on Tretrapod Zoology, a series of articles about prehistoric felines among which one can find big cats like lions, pumas, jaguars, cougars, cheetahs or leopards on continents where they totally disappeared later. Europe, where the sabre-tooths, lions and leopards are Pumas of South Africa, cheetahs of France, jaguars of England
