Reassurance

Posted by
Pied Crow (Abuja, Nigeria) on 9 January 2010 in Animal & Insect.

With the young hyenas still nearby, but now playing with a stick, the mother giraffe gave her offspring some comfort (see previous three days' posts).
This whole encounter took about 15 minutes, and was fascinating to watch.
