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.

 We have had a number of mock charges over the many years of African Safaris from mostly Elephants but also Rhino and Buffalo but had never been charged by a lion before.This was one scary experience.We were in an open landrover in the Little Chem Chem area in the Tarangire National Park,Tanzania,East Africa and came up on a mating lion couple.We were maybe 10-15 yards away when the Ranger /Guide stopped the vehicle and the male growled at us and before we knew he was coming right at us as seen from this photo.My wife ,Marisse Goldman and Dan Harlacher were on the side of the vehicle directly in its path and Adele Harlacher and I were on the other side.The Ranger/Guide stood up and frantically waved his arms and then banged loudly on the side of the vehicle and the lion stopped maybe 4-5 yards from the vehicle.We have since found out that his name is Silas!!None of us can remember if there were 2 or 3 charges but definitely more than one.

Mine! We left Mata Mata camp early one morning and came across a scene of carnage four wildebeest carcasses strewn across the sand dune with a pride of lions feeding on them. This male wasn't sharing with anyone and when we stopped to photograph him we got this pose before he dragged the carcass away and under a tree.
