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.

Well obiviously EBM lost his brothers and territory (some say to Mjejanes, some to young Jocks) , SSM was a loner who hang around Malelane Gate, but young Jocks took control of that whole area so he moved off..

Being 2 nomadic males in the same area they form a coalition and moved into Afsaal area, where presence of Mpondos become weaker with 3 members returning north in early to mid 2020.

They are prob the males who fight 5th Mpondo and responsible for disappearence of Blonde Mpondo as they took their prides.

They've lost a lot of mane. I don't know due which, but perhaps stress and lack of food are playing an important role here.

A promising coalition in Kruger. Hopefully they'll grow healthy and strong. Although would be good if they received another name, Perhaps, according the road name where they are photographed or a name that means something. A lot of Mazithi males lately haha.

I read on a facebook group that he is part of a coalition with two fourway males supposedly sons of the matshapiri males, are these two fourway males the only matshapiri sons still alive?

Stunning recent shot of the White Ghost Casper!
One of the four Shish males. It was recently reported that Casper and his 3 brothers fought a bloody fight with the two Nsemani males ( The older Mbiri & Rockfig ). The Nsemani males are not related by blood but formed a successful coalition. The photographer mentioned the Shish males were injured after the fight, but they were seen in the morning together announcing their presence through their strong roars.

Kruger National Park, South Africa.
