&Beyond Phinda guide, Busani came to see a mother cheetah with two cubs while on a LIVE safari for WildEarth. Busani observed a crocodile hiding close as one of the cubs approached the waterhole to satisfy his thirst. As Busani shared with LIVE viewers around the world shortly after, what happened next was tragic and difficult to see.
Nature can be harsh and difficult to comprehend at times. While we would prefer happier endings to events like these, every species, including the crocodile, has a place in the ‘cycle of life.’
