... very soon. I learned a lion can go a week and a half without a kill. This park also is battling poachers. Because there are fewer animals out, we did a lot of tracking, which was interesting, I also learned a few cool things. We saw a lot of elephant dung. I remarked on this, and Kennedy told me why.
