Wild Thumper goes Wild hunting Lions in Africa!

I heard through the grapevine (amando96, Gareth) that a Wild Thumper Chassis was being used to photograph wild animals!

This looks really awesome, great work guys!

Wow! Great to see Wild Thumper used in such a great project. I hope this leads to more use of it for commerical, scientific, and creative purposes.

You should ask those guys if you can reference their project. What a great commerical for Wild Thumper!

I have sent them an email. I hope I can get some more footage of the MkII Beetle Bot.

Great to see them getting the lion cubs interested in robotics at a young age :P
