Baboon

Shrill, screech, whoop, scatter;

Fangs bared, contenders clashing;

Troop watch for new king

Leopard

Secret watcher prowl

Cloaked in African night,

Cache dinner up tree

Honey Badger

Furious warrior spit,

Standing against greater odds,

Forget his small size

Hyena

Jaws crush bones, clan feeds.

Nip in haunch chides brother,

Ladies call shots here

Flamingo

Gangly legged birds

Startled rise as one from lake

A red flag takes wing
