Photo of the Day

Christian Sperka

Our photo of the day was taken of a young lion after an unsuccessful porcupine hunt, evidenced by the quills stuck in his mouth and chest! Not to worry, Panthera's wildlife photographer partner, Christian Sperka, reported that the lion was simply inexperienced and clumsy, and when seen 2 days later, was free of the quills.
