Africa, Africa, Africa. Let's do it!

Sooo new page, as promised. We left last time with Africa discussing with Chui about cubs. Well, in this page, OMG AFRICA GETS AMBUSHED, OH NO CALL REINFORC-- Wait.

It's her cubs, play-fighting with her!

So yes, there you have it. Ladies and gentlemen, Africa's children! Two furballs of pure naughtyness.
Their names? Mosi and Binti :D But I'm not gonna tell you which one is which! You'll just have to guess right now ;)
Also, a number of you might guess at this point that Africa did something strange with their names. They are not names from any place in Africa (or anywhere really). So, why did Africa go against her mother's recommendation?
Anyway, both cubs share traits with their parents: Africa and this mysterious male (that I didn't even design, shhhhhhhh), but one of them actually looks a lot like Africa's father: Tumaini. Tumaini - Fan Character by Aspi-Galou (Designed by :iconaspi-galou:! :heart:)
In fact, the cub to the right is a strawberry leopard, just like him! "Strawberry leopard" refers to a colour mutation that makes the leopard's fur look almost ginger instead of the usual tan. And because grandpa had it, I thought it would be nice if one of the cubs had this gene :D You're right, you're right, one of the cubs should have been black like Grandma Giza, and I was actually a step away from doing that... but I had to pass. For a reason I can't quite tell you yet ;)

Anyway, Aspi, I did promise you that I would hint to Tumaini's presence in the story, even if Tumaini himself didn't appear :D One of his grandchildren has his same fur colour!

As for their behaviour, leopard cubs often "ambush" Mom when she comes back from a hunt. They do that to practice the skills they will use later on, when they become adults.

So, I really hope you like this page, and I hope you like the cubs! I sure do <3 I love both of them^^

I really love this page. It's not only cute but so well drawn. You can really see the emotions the characters are feeling. It's original and just so well done! You have a very good eye for detail. The characters look the same in each panel so readers can easily tell who is who.

The side view in the first panel is a little odd to me. The face just looks a bit off. But there is nothing else I can say that I find off. Your use of color is amazing, and I really enjoyed this page. Good job.

So if Chui isn't the father of Africa's cubs, who is, and why isn't he around like Chui keeps being?

ARVEN92 Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The identity of the cubs' father is unknown. :)
In the wild, male leopards don't take care of their cubs. They usually meet the females in order to mate and then leave them be.
On the other hand, Chui is a leopard seeking a mate, so he strayed into Africa's territory and is currently attempting to kill her cubs in order to make her go into heat again, which is why he's wandering so persistently around her.

hm. If Chui wants to just mate with her, why does he challenge her for her territory too? Was he planning on mating with her and then kicking her out of her territory? That doesn't seem to lead to a guaranteed passing on of genes.

ARVEN92 Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, that happens because Africa is not currently in heat yet. Leopards look for each other's company only when they need to mate. When the heat season ends, they go back to being rivals, which means they compete for territory and prey. Africa and Chui are currently in this phase, although Chui is trying to get Africa into heat again by killing her cubs.
His plan is to mate with her and then occupy her territory.

Ah, Africa.  You're such a good mother.  But, I am curious.  Are Binti and Mosi place names in Africa?  While I'll admit to a lot of ignorance where Africa (the continent not the leopard) is concerned, I would have thought I'd know most possible common names.

Ah, actually, neither Mosi or Binti are places in Africa, although they are two common African first names :)

Ah, I see.  So Africa chose to not follow the tradition of her family by naming her cubs after locations in Africa.  Well, she did say that things should change, if I recall correctly.

OK I KNOW THIS IS LATE. But after reading through again, I JUST realized that Africa broke the tradition of naming the cubs after places, which was her family's tradition.

I guess "everything changes" xP
