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.

This thread is here so that we can study the behavior of Wild Lions conflicts. It is recommended to post images, videos and information when two or more wild lions in confrontation/fighting.
It is also request that write a conclusion note about the final outcome. You can describe their technique, agility, experience, size and many other factor which decide such outcomes.

This is not VS debate, rather we love to have a sensible study based on real facts.

So this is new video from Latest Sightings





3 male male lion attacked and younger male lion and injured him badly. Though elephants and hippo interrupted the fight, but injury was enough for the young lion and he ultimately succumbed to death.

Well, I think Wild lion irrespective of numbers, prefer to wreck the backbone and legs thus immobilizing the enemy. They always attack from behind to other lion and if they got good hold, game is over for the victim.

A very intense and emotional sighting as the coalition of 3 powerful dominant Mjejane Male Lions managed to isolate and attack 1 of the youngest of the 6 young males that have been vocalising and scent marking in their territory. The brave young male had no chance as the other 5 youngsters were nowhere to be found, it seems they were all separated during the night. His spine was broken and he succumbed to his injuries very quickly. We knew it was going to be a matter of time before the 3 big males defended their turf and offspring from the 6 young intruders but the 3 were not together for some time in different parts of their large territory along the Crocodile river. The 3 finally located each other after a few days and joined in a brutal show of force to the remaining 5 youngsters, who seem to have been a little over eager and confident too soon. They definitely underestimated the reaction of the 3 dominant males, it will be really interesting to see how this story unfolds and if the 5 remaining males stick around in the area.

Some interesting male Lion dynamics currently unfolding as 6 confident young male Lions have arrived in the area of Mjejane Game Reserve along the Crocodile River in the Southern Kruger National Park. 1 of the coalition of 3 current dominant Mjejane males was quite rightly very unhappy when he found them in the area. He was on his own and quite outnumbered so he wisely decided to move back across the Crocodile River to Kruger National Park to locate his coalition partners. The young males have been roaring and vocalising their intentions, the 3 bigger established Mjejane males will most likely defend this portion of their territory against the 6 young challengers but it will be interesting to see what unfolds and if the 6 stick around.

Two huge males and a lioness. The roaring of an other more or less near male make them nervous...

" The presence of the buffalo in the lions' territory has attracted the attention of a rival pride. The intruders are formidable -- and their presence will not be tolerated. As Renoka and Lakan prepare to defend their territory, the stage is set for a vicious confrontation that will have tragic consequences. "

I put this here, even though old clip. Reason is, that this is one is one of the very few if not only video in which can be seen how powerful swipe hits other lion quite perfectly. With force and effect usually not seen. In countless of videos tigers and lions are swiping each others with no effect, even though it´s often claimed, that they can crush skulls of cows etc. with single paw swipe. Usually it´s not the force of the swipe, which makes any real effect really unless claws hit the right spot.

This video then again show, that when swiper has good balance and can concentrate weight and force behind swipe, it can have effect. When looking at how more dominant lion (obviously) swipes the other one down at approximately 1:06-1:10 it can be said, that fight was over just like that even though there was some minor action also after it. I think, that other lion learned respect and fast when finding itself on ground in split second. Was it a lucky shot or something this more dominant lion had learned to do, who knows, but it still show what kind of force there is and can be, when everything is spot on. I bet, that some smaller animal would have been rolling over for several meters from that swipe and maybe deadly injured just like that.
