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.

Tristan talks about changing dynamics in the Nharu pride. Seems a daughter and both sons are absent and have been for a week or so (at the time of filming).






Would be great if Red Road's sons linked up with the Orpen boy. They seem to be of a similar age, and three is stronger than two or one.

What a beast of male lion! He steal the meal from the Mbiri pride. Hope the smaller-maned Mbiri male is around too.

On a side note. I saw there was yet another snaring incident that took place in Manyeleti, unfortunate victim was a leopard this time.

Yes. This time Maribye. Pretty bad too.

Scar Mbiri in Manyeleti, credits to Vestment, I believe the same sighting mentioned above:

Good to finally see him more consistently in good shape again. I thought it was too early for them to deteriorate since they have been always so healthy despite so many fights and the fact they're just entering old age now at 10.

Here he was seen feeding with 1 Mbiri lioness.

Guide said there were 5 females and one young male. He says ZZ chased the young male with all his mighty but the sub thankfully escaped:

Face-wise here he's looking like the last Skybed male, his half-brother:

I think at least 1 is. But they'd have no bond or even memory of each others as pride mates. Mbiri males left the pride more than 7 years ago.

Dont forget Big boy mbiri came back and mated with his natal pride after jr's passing. Not sure what came out of that but he didnt stay long because his brother wasnt with him

Maybe the smaller subs could be his?
