Hi! I am the new Serena research assistant. I have been out in the Mara for a bit over a month now. A few days ago when Julie and I were heading back to camp, we came across these three in the middle of the road.
Sherman was moving her two cubs, Rocket and Astro, from Schiphol Den to DeGaulle Den. As the cubs meandered across the road and snapped at grass stalks, Sherman patiently waited for them and slowly guided her easily distracted cubs towards their new den. The last few meters proved a little too exciting, and Sherman carefully picked up one cub and deposited him in the den hole. When we left, Sherman was curled up nursing Rocket and Astro.
