Alert Pukus at Sunrise

A herd of puku are backlit by the morning sun on the Busanga Plains. They roam around the open plains in the early morning grazing on the fresh grass between the water channels. They must stay alert and constantly look up if they think there is danger. Since a large pride of lions hunts on these plains they need to stay aware of predators.
