Early Morning Hunt
Lion on the Hunt

‘Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up and knows that it will have to outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.

And, every morning in Africa a lion wakes up and knows that it will have to outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.

So, in Africa, it doesn’t matter if you’re the lion or the gazelle, when the sun comes up, you had better be running.’
