Sure, everybody says what goes on at home is nobody’s business but those in the house. But everybody WANTS to know what really goes on. Enter the Cubcam – a camera that captures the images of the secret life of lions and their cubs. Be careful of what you want to know, you might just find out.

Little guys sneak up on something hiding in the grass. The camera is hidden in elephant dung (how’d you like to have that job?)
The idea for the closeups go to Anup and Manoj Shah, and their sidekick, Carla.
“I am most satisfied with the images which show the personality of the lions.
There is one image of three lion cubs in the Ol Kiombo pride. They look slightly bold and a little apprehensive but that is exactly what a lion cub is.”

The cameras were triggered by movement nearby and were placed near watering holes. We get it now, it’s kinky. These guys just really wanted to see the animals strip down and take a bath.

“OOoo! Who’s that guy with the camera?” said Antoniette (Tony the Tiger’s sister).
Doesn’t matter. If it goes click, we’ll have him over for dinner and he can be the main course.”
