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.

In this area we have 2 S125/Nwaswitsotso males and Hamiltons male.
According to Hanno Emurus and Frikkie Grobler that they dominate a pride around S125 and S126. They even mentioned S125, which is south. Do you think they might are incorrect?

I doubt about s125, maybe they where seen there occasionaly, but its not in their normal territory range, recently they where seen all the way near Nsemani Dam, which is around 25-30 km of s125..

Casper's 3 brothers were given unofficial names, or nicknames. 

If i remember correctly, these aforementioned names are:

- Casanova

- Mflowethu 

- Footloose 

And of course, Casper.

Nkaya pan males hang out near sweni waterhole on s126 and south obviously near Nkaya pan on h1-3. Which is between s126 and s125, that’s why they refer to it near that probably .

Spot on my friend @Mabingilane Those are the unofficial names given by a photographer who saw them. I'll refer to them as # 1 # 2 # 3 # 4 since it makes me easier to ID them

who father these 4
They were fathered by the current ,,old Mazithi males"  who are seen near Orpen dam in  Tsokwane, except for the fourth male who joined to these three young males. The fourth older one is unrelated
