Africa, at last!

It's gonna be hard to adapt to the new change in scenery XD I'm not used to it after two years of prairie and forest XD
The cubs make it to the lake, albeit with some difficulty.

Enjoy!

Africa's facial expression is absolutely priceless! But what is really selling this page is the splash effects from the cubs sloshing their way through the mud. And don't think I didn't notice the boy holding his breath in that first splash, or the girl wishing she could just wash away all the mud.

And the last panel leaves us all with anticipation. Those of us who know why Africa is not so eager to drink that water knows that the children are in for a big surprise. Not a good surprise, but a surprise nonetheless.

I am so looking forward to the next page. KEEP ON DRAWING!

I fear the little ones are in for a rude awakening. But even "grown-ups" have to learn things the hard way, sometimes...

This will go bad.. Either they get sick of polluted water with flaningo droppings and the like, get dehydrated by drinking salt water or there are crocodiles or otehr predators close-by..

I was a little afraid of flamingos when I was little. I think it was because I played a game as a kid where there were flamingos running around the stage that would peck the characters if they got too close. The flamingos always looked angry too and were kinda freaky. Hopefully the cubs won't get attacked by birds.

If the crocs come, I hope the girl gets taken instead of the boy. At least he listens.

Since the water is salty , maybe crocodiles can't live in it (hopefully) and I don't think hundreds of flamingos would just stand there peacefully if there were predators in the water .

Gotta agree about Binti (that cub is even worse than Kiara from TLK 2 ! ) but hopefully none of them will get killed...

Crocodiles live in saltwater so it would be perfect for them and they are ambush predators so the flamingos might not even know they are there. Same reason why the herds go through the same croc-infested waters for migration.

I have a feeling they both die before the end of the story but I at least hope Binti goes first lol.

Flamingos are able to survive living on lakes that are really, REALLY caustic to other animals. I'm wondering if that's the trouble?

Oh Binti, you nailed the behaviour of the adult with that 'I'm playing grown-ups' comment. Truth speaks through the child's lips, isn't it? :p

O.O...
This page is absolutely beautiful! the great portrayal of wht can  become of a thirsty cub finding a muddy pond is spectacular ^^<3
poor dears are so endearing---yet they're in imminent danger now, having rushed into the open, moreso at a hard-to-tread place as a mudpool can be! o.o...
One can just hope there won't be any major predator willing to claim possession of the waterhole, tho that'd be a miracle o.o...
I dread Lions may be close... *shudder*
AMAZING new page! ^^
