Tigers, Lambs, and Volcanoes

So I was looking at this picture.  It shows a big troupe of mostly African animals all walking along the savanna together.  I think it was meant to be sort of an idyllic scene, but there are really all kinds of animals - tigers, giraffes, lions, gazelles, etc. - just walking together, not eating each other or anything.  Every time I look at it, despite the pleasant-looking scene, I think of some horrible catastrophe.  Why would all those animals be moving in one herd unless they're running away from a volcano or a fire or something?
