Sharing for two

As three long columns from Naabi Hills, had settled along the Ndutu Grasslands. Already many calves are being born. If you have many documentaries of wildebeest, it has been said that although family related mothers allow or adopt other calves unless their own. Its due to the capacity of milk. However we came across a mother in a nursing herd. One of the calves had approach it's aunt and cousin. It suckled on its aunt's milk. This was very unique behaviour of wildebeest.
