Comments / pictures

Mother to Jasper (born 1971), James 79, Janet

1974: My colleague Harvey Croze and I first met Jezebel and her family on February 24, 1974. We photographed the Adult females and some of the juveniles and when we developed and printed the pictures we gave the Adult females
names: Jezebel, Jessica and Juliet.

When we first photographed the JAs we noted that Jezebel and Juliet, both
had calves less than a year old, and that Jessica had a calf which was about
two and half years old.

1979: Jessica followed in April with another male.

1988: In January 1988 Jessica was speared and killed, making orphans
of Janet, James and Jasper.
