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.

You're probably the only one that has ever said that, from what I've read. I don't really know where you're coming up with that.

No. 

I don't think they were 6 or 7 years old, you're the one saying that, but if you take 5 second and look up other non-territorial lions of that age, and you'll see that it is possible.

Look up the Tsalala young males, for example.

That Mr.T, quite naturally, avoided a confrotation and, when chased by two of the boys, he went west and joined up his brothers.

The injuries they mention for June 29 must be the ones they and the 5th gave him back in June 5-6(yes, it takes that long to heal up), not from a new fight, that's why they said that day it was the very first time they saw the Majingilane in Londolozi, so there had not been a new fight.

Sorry but there were barely any injuries on Mr T after that fight. Kinky was more injured with his paw. T was in nearly tip top condition.

And this article doesn't mention there wasn't a fight after t was chased. He could have easily turned around and fought and then went back to his brothers.
Which fight are you referring to? KT and Mr T with the 5th majingilane.

In a first instance, yes.

Then he's also talking of a supposed fight 1 vs 4 of Mr.T with the Majingilane some weeks later, of which he came out alive(somehow). 

Of this there isn't a report, aside of what I already posted, being that the 4 went to Londolozi looking for him and chased him off.

What is most likely that happened, judging how lions behave in a general sense, is that two must have gotten a hold on him, roughed him up and he managed to escape, and the boys chased him off.

Yeah sorry I misscalculated by one year. My mistake. They died in early 2018 so if you say that DM was 13-14 by the time of his dead that makes him 5-6 years old in early-mid 2010. SN and GM makes 4-5 years old. Well... now that sounds realistic. However in case of DM that 6 yearrs sounds stretched don't you think? By that time generaly every lion is already full maned and he was not.

Now we can agree.

Wait, you are saying that 2 manginjis may have roughed him up but you have been telling me there was no interaction at all....

You told me not to assume but you are kinda doing the same thing now.

Not really, no.

The info doesn't say they fought at all, merely that two chased him off.

Now, you're very insistent that he fought them because reasons and because he was who he was, and I tend to agree that he could potentially have tried at first to hold on to whatever little territory he had left.

I can see him standing up and winning it against one, but as it happened the night of June 8th, as soon as a second male attacked him Mr.T would have escaped.

I say it again so there's no mistake. I don't think there was a fight, especially not vs the 4 because he would have been killed.

However, if there was a small scrap that the rangers didn't get to see, that's how I see it happening, it's what makes more sense.

The Majingilane Brothers.

As much as I love the atmosphere and feelings a really good still image can generate. 

This video of the four Majingilane Brothers my wife did, captures something no still image ever can. Turn the volume up loud and stand back. If this doesn't make the hairs on your neck stand up, nothing will. Enjoy!

Disregard for the norms and rules of the forum, trolling, disrespecting the mods, trying to create trouble with the other posters just for lols.

On that note, @Raj8143 , if I see you keep doing this crap of taunting the posters, and trying to start trouble where there is none, you will be out of here in no time.

I may not have the time to spend every hour of my day to babysit some lion threads just because someone is trying to create a flamewar, but you can bet the minute I see it, I'm going to take action.

I will not repeat myself.
