Lupunga

04th February 2012
While I was away in the North Luangwa, many of the grasses that line the dambos in the park produced their seeds. I returned to find the elephants gorging themselves on the nutritious Rice Grass - or Lupunga as the locals call it. Baboons, whose diet varies considerably depending on what is available, were making the most of it too. This female has stuffed her cheek pouches full of seeds which she can chew at her own leisure.
