Africa!

Time for a little backstory! And many of you did guess indeed! The scratch on Abasi's shoulder is indeed Chui's deed!

And who's the little zebra foal in last panel?
Haven't I already seen that diamond-shaped spot before? 

Enjoy!

After reading this, I have notice the male Zebra leader is telling his side of the story on how Chui attack the herd. I just wonder what is Chui's side of the story.

:happybounce: Thank you so much Arven92. I find the Zebra leader's point of view about meat eating animals (aka Chui who is a leopard) to be prejudice and very rude, but I do love his seriousness on protecting the ones he loves. Furthermore, while researching on Chui, I also realize some things about his behavior. For example,

Pages: 32- Chui was about to attack Giza in her old state/condition, but he was not able to attack Africa for the territory.

Page: 39 & 59- Chui can only pray on rabbits and squirrels.

Page: 48 & 49- Chui did not attack little Mosi. He only want to greet the little cub.

Page: 49 & 50- Chui still did not attack Africa. . . Not even once?

Page: 70- Not hunting any water buffaloes.
  
Page: 72- Cracking a horn from a dead skeleton animal.

Sherlock Holmes I really don't want to be a spoiler, but from all of these clues about Chui, I can see that the humans who saved him must've been responsible for his state of being. Who knows, I may will have to see it in your side of the story Arven92. Thank you again. Hi!

Wait, so isn't Kafil Abasi's son? Because just like leopards, zebras kill foals that they didn't father. CURSE YOU!

Not necessarily ;)
Zebra stallions don't always kill foals, especially if they are already weaned and don't pose an obstacle to them mating with the mares.
As for Kafil's father, I purposely left him ambiguous ;) It might be Abasi, but it might not be :D

And not to forgot that Zebras can have differents way of life ...i have read somthing interesting in a book where some zebras  , the male , have territory most near water  and they dominate any female that come near their territory for matting purpose  so they dont have a herd at all . it's crasy how much similar they all look and how different they could be in their way of life ... but i think its because they don't live in the same country and they have much less predator and maybe not at all .i read this long time ago. 

Sorry if that sound borring to anybody but i LOVE talking about animals .

I must say, I absolutely love this page! The effect in the first panel is pure genious and the whole page is so full of motion and so dramatic - and the last panel even brought a teeny weeny tear to my eye. Excellent work!!
