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.

Isn't it strange for a pride to bounce back and forth with 2 coalitions like the Nkuhuma's are doing with the BDM and Kambula's?  This just seems so odd to me.

In an area that is contested between multiple males/coalitions, this is pretty normal behaviour by the lionesses. This way, both coalitions will assume paternity of whatever cubs are born from these encounters and are therefore less likely to kill them

No, this is normal that females mate with all parties who are competing for territory and them.

This way if they give birth to cubs, neither males will kill the cubs.

OK, that does make sense.  I still think something has to shake out here.

Kambulas should do something at this point. They totally have the upperhand but they still haven't made a real effort to use it.
This must be the softest territory takeover in Sabi Sand atp (by four male lions)

In the meanwhile, people good at matching lions' features gonna have to guess which coalition sired the cubs Wink

@Ngonya yeah, big coalitions generally aren't so slow, especially when 3 of the members are 5.5yo.

Majingis roared on one morning for the first time on Mapogo territory and 2 lions were dead by the night, less than 2 months later Rasta disappeared and PB almost died.

WSM crossed from Kruger and killed the 2 dominant males in a single fight.

Selatis had a couple of serious clashes with the Mapogo and 2 big fights in 1 month, almost killing PB and then killing Mr.T, and that was 4v3 and only S1 looked like an impressive and well developed male.

Even the Birminghams once they actually challenged the Matimbas, managed to oust them for good quickly.

Meanwhile the Kambulas are older than all of these guys, have challenged already and are roaring for months, but don't seem interested in actually hunting the BDM down.

And it's not like they're facing a tough duo like S.Matimbas and Mlowathi.
