@stevewinterphoto @natgeo I am in Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda working with @alexbraczkowski on a @natgeowild program on Tree Climbing Lions!!! There are only two populations of lions in Africa which regularly climb trees and this is one of them! Lions here are thought to climb trees to escape the heat, escape tsetse flies and to see their food better from above. #follow our journey with the lions and a mission to count them on @natgeo and @natgeowild over the next few weeks!
