Ambitious Lioness

Will Fox / Published August 06, 2012 01:52 PM
During an early morning game drive in the Thorny Bush Reserve we came across a Lioness, who (bizarrely) seemed to be eying up a White Rhino. Of-course the Rhino was taking no notice of the Lioness, why would she?Well you have to admire the lioness zeal, if nothing else, because she opted to charge the Rhino from behind. I'm not sure what her plan was but it soon changed when the Rhino turned and faced her.Now with 60 cms now being directed at her, rather than the rear end, our ambitious cat tacked away to safety in mid charge.What is they say discretion is the better part of valour.

What is Campfire?

Campfire is a place where published items with the most participation go so that everyone knows what’s hot. The more people that collaborate around an item the hotter the fire gets.

Starting a Campfire

Campfires get started when a published item in the Explore section recieves a high rate of participation from other members.

What is Stoking?

Stoking is a form of fire starting. When you stoke an item on safarious you’re basically promoting as a campfire worthy. Stoking has a higher value over comments and views taking place on an item.

The more stokes the higher the chances an item will catch and turn a campfire.
