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.

Thats sad. Mother was probably exhausted after just giving birth. You can still see the placentia on her. Baby and mother never had a chance.

a) Probably Somalia (1931):

b) North-east Africa, but south of Somalia (Berger, 1910). The male was shot at the moment he took his prey. Even in death, he wouldn't let go:

I was shocked as well when I first saw the video. I knew and saw some videos where buffalos actually chased and attacked lions. You could see some serious injuries but this lioness here was lucky as hell. One organ damaged and every help would be in vain. Furthermore she was lucky to not being hit twice. Now people know how dangerous it actually is for a predator to hunt big prey like a buffalo. Well, if you don´t do it in a pride or pack, it becomes even more dangerous and makes it even more impressive, as far as I´m concerned.

I'm sure some of you may know of some lionesses with manes, it is rare, however when recorded is pretty interesting.

I know of two lionesses, one I just heard of recently. Here she is with a male lion. The sexual dimorphism is easily noticed, notice the size and shape of the skulls.

Here I believe is the first lionessI heard about.

Siena, the lioness has almost completely recovered from the injury she received when gored by a buffalo in early April. She is once again a very active member of the Marsh Pride, hunting and participating as normal, her wound having healed almost entirely, with just a small remaining patch of fur yet to grow back.

It is thanks to Kenya Wildlife Service veterinary officers Dr. Njoroge and Dr. Limo and the DSWT funded Sky Vet Initiative that Siena was saved.

Full story and image of the recovery for Siena. http://www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/up...asp?ID=678
