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.

Lion Predation

@Shadow :

About #630: you told " One reason might be tourists in car keeping constant noise.... [Image: sad.png] But of course even animals are time to time sloppy.   ".

Yes of course, but here the tourist car is far from the hyenas (seeing the path to make after to come near the lion killing the hyena). I don't believe there was other tourists cars because it wouldn't be the lone car to make this approach of the lion (when several tourists cars suddendly want to come close to a lion, it's immediately the bloody mess even over a so open landscape)...

Sloppy hyena ?  Both hyenas seemed busy at the beginning.

Probably the lion was coming closer to the hyenas against the wind. Nevertheless they were... absent-minded. Dangerous and fateful behaviour !

Yes, sloppy is the word for that, imo. So good visibility to every direction and they got surprised like that :) Terrain seemed to be such, that they should have spotted that lion "miles away" if paying attention to surroundings, they live there after all with lions and they for sure should know it Wink But we all know, that animals make mistakes, especially younger ones with less experience. Same thing in hunting time to time, some performances could be called sloppy or miserable try outs :)

The image is interesting, this lion with damaged eye looks like a prototype of the lion for the incoming "Lion King" scheduled  for release for July 19th this year (I'm already counting the days)…

Can anyone believe this video of a lone lioness chasing an adult elephant, or these pictures of a lioness killing a giraffe?

Maybe this has been here in past, maybe not. One older but quite extraordinary incident to show, that every now and then we can see something, which can feel almost impossible to believe. Until it happens :) Fascinating case.

This article is about two lions hunting a giraffe. Some spectacular photos. Case is from 2017 and maybe some have seen it before, but if not then these photos are worth to see.

More accurately, Bovine kills, since there is also a buffalo. Just as lions and tigers are members of the genus Panthera within the subfamily of Pantherinae  within the family of Felidae (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1570911/), buffaloes and cattle are members of the tribe Bovini within the subfamily of Bovinae within the family of Bovidae (https://bmcgenomics.biomedcentral.com/ar...164-10-177).
