Yesterday our field team got our first view of the Xakampa pride's cubs. This is the last remaining uncollared pride in our area and a primary target for our collaring effort next month. Xakampa (pronounced with a soft click 'tssa-kampa') was unknown to our project until earlier this year when we stumbled upon them while looking for the other cats. These two cubs represent another growing lion pride in our area.
