One of three groups of lions we saw in a day at Ruaha.
On road marker. Location approximate.
Female or non-breeding male.
Not 100% certain of ID.
Pair perched on a boulder.
Like this observation (http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/17238), it's a challenge for me to distinguish tree hyrax (Dendohyrax) from a bush hyrax (Heterohyrax). I'm sticking with bush hyrax because of the visible patch above the eye, and the somewhat distinguishable neck (tree hyraxes are more heavily built).
On boulders before park gate.
Taken from the bridge over the hippo/croc pool at park gate.
In croc pool.
Juvenile. Yellow "saddle" hasn't colored in yet.
On a dead elephant.
At least three species of scavenger: white-backed vulture, marabou stork, and the lappet-faced.
Not 100% certain of ID past Euphorbia genus.
Plentiful in park.
This one shows some elephant damage.
Additional three photos were taken from a viewing platform built in the tree.
Relaxed around people.
Not very confident of ID.
On ground next to lion pride.
Descending a baobab.
It's a challenge for me to distinguish tree hyrax (Dendohyrax) from a bush hyrax (Heterohyrax), but the shorter toes make me think Heterohyrax. The rock hyrax (Procavia capensis) does not occur in this part of Tanzania. Definitely could be wrong.
