Wild Wives of Africa: Young & Restless

Wild Wives of Africa: Young & Restless
Being a mother is an art in itself, and requires unending devotion, patience and enduring long weeks of sacrifice. Victoria bravely raises her four baby cheetahs alone. As for Lauren, she and her sisters struggle to raise two young lion cubs without the help of pride males. Their amphibious neighbor, Cathy trudges back to her group of bitter and battling hippopotamuses and overcrowded conditions to raise her son. Everyone is exhausted. And at some point all these mothers have to separate from their sons or daughters so the young ones can make their own way in the world. But for this new generation, times look tough. On Savannah Lane, available territories are rare, especially when an invasion is in the works.
