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.

Tragic news coming from the Madikwe Game Reserve 

The Parks famous male lion Monomoholo has died It was reported yesterday that his carcass was found already surrounded by scavengers. Since the reason for his death is unknown at this time the reserve is running investigations to hopefully get a clearer overview as to what has happened. The sudden death is a rather unexpected incident since Monomoholo was constantly seen healthy and in good condition. It is only a few months ago that the 12 years old male lion and his coalition partner had successfully defended their territory from the two younger Addo male lions, killing one of them in the process. Monomoholo was a long-term dominant male lion of the reserve who never got tired of making his presence known. You would often find him roaring and patrolling in the southern section of Madikwe. An area that he kept under his control with firm confidence. During his time at Madikwe he had bonded with two unrelated males. In his younger days he had formed a coalition with the much older Naledi male who had lost his brother in a fight with the current Kwandwe male and his former partner. Ironically it would be exactly this Kwandwe male that would later become Monomoholos new coalition partner in 2017. Together they established a very successful time with the Tshaba pride and the Mica/Jamala pride which resulted in a lot of offspring. One of his sons, the Bolakega male, is currently bonding with the remaining Addo male lion. Monomoholo had one of the most intimidating stares of all male lions that we have come to know. A look into his eyes would send shivers down your spine. His presence will be missed at the Madikwe Game Reserve.

I hope they can find out what happened. If he still has his paws then its natural. If they cannot find any large wounds I would say snake bite. May this king rest in peace. Any word on his partner? I see his bonding with this lions son. I'm hoping they can defend the pride from rival males.

It's wonderful to see him, especially as a son of Sepo. I've got to say he is beautiful. Doesn't he have a coalition?
