May 1, 2022, Johannesburg, South Africa (Press Release) -- This month, as Mother's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world, Springbok Casino pays tribute to Female Power in the Wild. This month's feature gives ten examples of African animals that live in social systems where strong females are dominant.
Elephants live in herds of females that stick closely together, protecting each other, celebrating the birth of a calf or mourning the death of a member. Naked Mole Rats live their entire lives underground. They are the first mammal discovered to exhibit eusociality, a social organization where only one 'queen' bears offspring.
Lemurs also live in troops led by a matriarch who decides when the group will eat, sleep, and travel. Queen Bees rule the hive. Her sole function is to keep the hive going by laying eggs in the honeycomb structures of the hive.
Lions live in prides where females hunt in well-co-ordinated packs. The male lions, however, are the first to eat.
Meerkats of the Kalahari Desert live in burrows in small groups made up of several families, called mobs, led by a dominant female.
Spotted Hyenas live in highly complex groups called clans, led by the females who are more aggressive and slightly larger than males.
Bonobos (similar to chimps) live in groups led by an old, experienced matriarch -- a kind of Super Granny. She earns her place by forming alliances rather than through physical intimidation.
Also known as killer whales, Orcas live in a group with their mother for life, travelling and hunting in multi-family units known as matrilines.
Taking a bit of a different angle on female power, Preying Mantis are sexual cannibals: females are known to eat their mates after sex.
This month Springbok players can take 25 free spins on the new Copy Cat Fortune slot game, a new slot game from Realtime Gaming with their new Reel Copy feature.
South Africa's favourite online casino, Springbok Casino offers hundreds of slots and table games, all played in rand. Customer service is available in either English or Afrikaans.
