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.

Battle Scarred

Post Any images and stories of big cats with battle scars.
"Battle Scars" don't necessarily need to be from a fight, they can be from a failed or successful predation attempt as well.

Try to keep away from Cuts and post more of the unusual and Identifying scars we see.
I prefer Facial Region images but any area is fine.


Birmingham Boy ( I don't know how he received it)

Charleston Male with his snapped Canine ( i believe it was kicked off on a predation attempt)

And ended up being half blind

In this other angle, notice the split lip and the ear.

Male tiger Barka, after a fight he won. He had to be stitched up, though (his left jaw bone was exposed). Photograph Zwanepoel (don't remember the title of his book right now, but it had a lot of good photographs):

This is Napejo of the Rongai pride, a famous lioness from Masai Mara, Kenya. His scar is from a venom spit of Black Spitting Cobra (Naja nigricincta).

@Pckts:

About #9: I hope, since 2014, this tiger is completely recovered from his wound...

@Majingilane:

About #8: this young lion had "the eyes bigger than the belly" (french expression to say he was too presumptuous)... Consequences: a lost eye and a face badly wounded. The youthful mistakes are never forgiven and always severely punished.

Cruel and hard photos in any case...

Exactly what I was thinking.

I'm trying to find out who is he, but I thought it was such an awesome image.
