Each month biologist Pedro Vaz Pinto shares news and photos from Cangandala Park on our Giant Sable page.
Resulting from the successful capture operation, the routine has changed dramatically in Cangandala, as our effort is now focused in keeping the animals under surveillance within the fenced area… The females don’t look as fat as they used to when they were captured, but this no reason for concern, as it may be a more natural condition now… More importantly, as probably what everyone wants to know, the bull seems to be a competent master. He is always near the females, leading them in the daily routines, but securing the back and guarding the herd from intruders. The females seem to submit to his guidance naturally and joyfully. They’re in love, and no, I don’t know if they are pregnant yet – we’ll have to wait a few more months!
