    Do you think they have a picture available to see what those people are seeing.
    it is a unique situation.

    Too funny! That's a Serengeti Lion Project vehicle, and those are our field assistants! (Which means the animal is almost certainly a lion.)

    It's a young male lion (their manes grown in like mohawks). Looks like he's getting up from a nap.

    We take hundreds of photos of the lions every day to make sure we identify them correctly based on their unique whisker spot patterns -- so it would be hard to find this particular image. But we do often come across a gaggle of lions lounging beneath a camera-trap tree -- they like the shade!

    But you have the location of this camera trap, as well as date and time. Shouldn't it be easy to find it?
