The animals of the Serengeti

For the last 45 years, the Lion Project of the University of Minnesota in the United States has studied Serengeti lions – from the reason of their manes to why they live in groups.

In recent years, however, the project has sought to understand how lions in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania interact with other animals. To gather information on the other species, researchers at the American university placed 225 cameras hidden throughout the park – which gave rise to the Snapshot Serengeti.

These chambers have since provided precious information on the dynamics of many elusive African wild species. In addition to the information on these species, the researchers still have self-portraits of the animals, many of them comic.

The Guardian shared some of these photos. See them here.
