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.

For those doubting, Tristan has posted that the Orpen sub was seen mating with several Mbiri lionesses.

As I said particular that growl only happens during mating, I remember Dr. Craig Packer talking about this and saying that these growls don't happen in fake mating, that the male do that very particular growl only when he is mating for real.

Yeah this pride is going crazy with the inbreeding, even when random males show up to mate, it turns out these males are the Mbiri males who are related to the females on both sides of the families.

At this point they may as well rename them the Targaryen pride lol.

But jokes aside, once the Orpen is ready to go nomadic and the remaining subs grow to independence, I hope some new unrelated males could take over the pride and finally raise a new generation of more genetically diverse cubs.

Since these beautiful animals are basically enclosed in a small piece of land and limiting their movements. Why cant the parks work together and relocate males to get more diversity? I hope these animals get more roaming freedom though

They're free roaming, there are no fences to their north, south or east.

No need for intervention.

I'm South African and I get that reference. Then again I tend to go down the rabbit hole of social media a lot so there's also that lol.

As for the pride, Manyeleti is part of a ~20 000 square kilometre wilderness area (and that's not counting the Zimbabwe and Mozambique parts of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park) through which all animals can move freely so in time new males will arrive and take over the Mbiri pride. So no need for intervention

We never see Mandevu mating. Ncila is probably more dominant.

Old Skorro Female (I think) on her way out it seems





Hard to tell, but looks like the same old girl on the video from 3 weeks ago of the Skorros on a kill. (Right ear notch)

Latest Tintswalo Virtual Safari. Nharus and Red Road sighted very far north (right outside Tintswalo Lodge). Not sure of the timing but them being so far north probably coincides with Mandevu and Ncile being in Kruger.
