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.

Full eye contact!

One of the 2 Nandzana/Ngobeni males that dominate the H-14 area. They are the pride males of the Ngobeni pride and the Shimuwini pride.

Ok, a very interesting update. For now I'm posting it here, then if it needs moving to a more appropiate thread, I'll move it.

The info is by William Esworth from his facebook group "Lions of Kruger National Park".

I've got a very interesting update for the group. I think it's the Matimba males and the Skybed males. Andrew Charles saw two male lions kill another male recently. "As we were staying at Tamboti on the 10th/11th of May 2016 we witnessed 2 younger males all but kill an older Male in the dry river bed in front of our Tent have some great footage of this sighting too. I have some video footage but currently don't have access to my computer once I get it I can show it to you but it was around 5am so it's filmed in low light I have a couple of still that I'll send you now but they aren't great " Photo taken by Andrew Charles.

"The 4 Hilda's Rock male lions were born in March/April 2010 and they are the pride males of the Kumana dam pride(8 lionesses and 9 cubs). These 4 males dominate the Kumana dam area in KNP. Some people call them the Kumana dam males too."

“The things in this world which are thoroughly insignificant are precisely the things which are singularly rare.”
A shot of the popular white male Lion “Casper” jaunting across the bush east of Satara in the KNP. What a rare beauty he is!

can't wait to see the updates. Apparently two of the Northern Matimbas were spotted by a photographer on the 06th June in prime condition so rumors has it that it was a Skybed that was on the receiving end. But rumors are just noise, let's wait for the facts to unfold.

So far I haven't read anything else on this event, so you're very right. There's no point in especulating without facts.
