A new world record

Filming the science team from NRF for our series ‘The Wild Bunch’, they were able to DNA sample and code 45 lions in three days. This set up a data base for the African lion which is the most quantitative (and probably qualitative). This would have taken weeks or even months in the wild, so captive lion facilities, whilst I am not a fan, have their uses. Thanks to Prof Antoinette Kotze and her amazing team.
