The famous and historical Lion House of Gorongosa National Park (Mozambique)

The Lion House at Gorongosa National Park. An abandoned Safari Lodge now home to a pride of lions.

This Gorongosa hippo’s mouth can open almost 180 degrees and its teeth sharpen themselves as they grind together. That’s one serious bite for a herbivore!

Throwback Thursday:    The lion cubs in this photo from the ‘60’s or ‘70’s could be the ancestors of the gorgeous lions we have in Gorongosa today. It’s obvious where they got their good looks from!     Thanks to Clem Haagner for this photo!
