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.

Yea, but who should give them new names?

I would assume the rangers, but I'm not sure how that entire process works

Well ntsevu is an actual number in shangaan, it means six. So let's wait how many of them would actually move around as an unit once that's clear. Five is ntlhanu btw (h is silent afaik). They might end with something random like Nhwalungu (?) aka Northern for Styx and Nkuhuma (the name did not last long though).

Not sure about the meaning of Kambula, is it a local place?

It isn't still a problem of which we should be quite worried about. I'm sure rangers will give named them once they star their nomadic journey. The Timbavati rangers will given a name to the Torchwood and BYM males soon. A quite interesting name!

It depends where will Kambula young males settle, and that might not be in Sabi Sands or reserves like Timbavati/Manyeleti, yet Kruger, areas where theres nobody who can name them.

Both look like Tinyo to my. I would say #1 and #3 - Nhenha, #2 and #5 - Tinyo, #4 and #6 - Nsuku.

He also looks a bit like Mfumo, but the one on the left is almost identical to his father. They will be beautiful boys

I think numbers 2 and 5 make you doubt who looks like Mfumo or Tinyo, but these 6 guys are the great future of SS.

As far as I remember and if birth dates of Kambula males presented by Mala Mala are correct, Mfumo unfortunately can not be a father of any set of Kambula males.
