There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Avoca males are now terrytorial on the part of the Kambula males territory. It is natural that in such case Kambula females will mate with them. Females are not to be blamed for the males competition over control over the pride. The only reason females used to stick to their present dominant males is the safety of the cubs they have with those males. There is no any loyalty of pride females to dominant males beyond that and since some Kambulas do not have cubs at the moment it is natural for them to mate with males present in the arena.

Well for example Kambula 2 do a lot of domage, as she is infertile she mate with anyone of the males that attract some male as Othawa male...
The same happend with Ximhungwe mating with Selati, that give them confidence to push more and more... They play a central role into that.
But of course i don't blame them, there is their way of life, i still have in mind Styx pride who fight against Kinky tail and Mr.t for protect theirs cubs...

Cubless lionesses from Styx and Sparta pride were mating with Mlovathis as well, similarly as Kambulas do now.

Having a few infertile lionesses around has its advantages as well.
They help hunting and keeping guard while they wont burden the pride with extra cubs to look after. 
Their constant need for mating helps preventing the resident males from leaving to seek new lionesses. Not to mention they are keeping invading males entertained while the pride can evacuate or the males can regroup for an attack. 

So I think their contribution is more a positive than a negative. .
