    The road conditions through Botswana are not necessary good enough to cater for the new traffic volume.

    It looks like they didn't break off all at once, some have marks on the broken surface which looks like contact abrasions.

    Quite a surprise in lion behaviour.

    Thanks Tony for the alert and the link.
