Glorious mud!

Glorious mud!

On one of my recent photo tours I came across the 3 youngsters (2.5 years old) from the Hollywood pride just as they were dragging themselves out of a patch of sticky mud on the edge of a lagoon. They had found a buffalo carcass in there that they were trying to feed on and obviously thought it was worth getting covered in mud for. This mud has a very high clay content and is incredibly sticky – there was still patches of it stuck to them 2 weeks later!
