Impala Survives Lion Attack
Impalas are one of the tiniest wild animals, and they never have it easy because they are so defenseless. The majority of their young do not survive the first few weeks of life due to attacks by predators. This picture shows an impala that survived a lion’s attack; the evidence is on its body.
They give birth to their young at the sun’s height in the middle of the day when predators are resting. They are unique among creatures in that they are believed to be able to postpone delivery by a month or more. They have an amazing leaping capacity, which may be utilized against hunters.
