AS5

During the course of the morning the research team discovered Kenge, AS5 and AS4 in the Hwange area of the Ngamo release site feeding on the remains of their latest kill.  At that time each one of them was feeding from a different piece of the carcass.  AS5 decided to approach his sister AS4 and aggressively took away what she was feeding on.  AS4 tried to fight back, but then submissively backed off leaving AS5 to take her share, which he polished off quickly.

And if that wasn`t enough, AS5 went on to approach Kenge, one of the pride's adult females.  The two engaged in a small fight which did not last long; Kenge quickly deciding the scrap for her sraps was not worth the energy.  Showing her submissive side she walked away, leaving AS5 to finish off the little left of what she had been eating.

Having expended considerable energy to get his share of the scraps AS5 engaged in a little social time before a yawn that preempted the inevitable post-meal nap.
