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.

These guys were living quietly but then they get chased by S.Avocas and you guys taunt them by saying "New Mapogos".

I am confused by this statement? Who did we say were the new Mapogos? S.avocas or the nkhulus? I will try to dissect it.

These guys were living quietly? - not really, they were nomads. They travel far and wide to build up bonds and confidence until ready for a takeover. They will vocalize if felt ready.

They got chased by S.Avocas - yes many up and coming coalitions gets chased around. These nkhulus + dreadlocks are no different

You guys taunt them by saying "New Mapogos" (s.avocas) - i dont think anyone insinuated they were kt/mr.t

You guys taunt them by saying "New Mapogos" (nkhulus) - we didn't say they were the new Mapogos because they were living quietly and got chased around. We say they're potentially can be the new Mapogos with their numerical advantage and their nomadic direction leading to sabi sands.

Honestly. These days in some circles a male lion is declared the new MrT of the new Mapogos the minute his gender is determined. He probably got it from Facebook or something.

There were some who were comparing them to Mapogos before they got chased and then there were some who were taunting them after the chase. My comments were light-heartedly towards the latter. Please don't take offence. If you did, apologies.
Hope the sons would become just as legendary as their dads.

And they will still be compared to the mapogos but it’s literally only because it’s 7 of them the most famous coalitions that held the largest territory 6 males so when you see a coalition of 7 it reminds many of them plus they’ve eating lions and so did the mapogos

what a great sighting of one of the three beautiful phabeni males on patrol, they are the dominant males in Pretoriuskop and so far they have been very successful ruling, they are very powerful and something to highlight is that their bodies are well structured with beautiful manes, impressive specimens.
