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.

In fact everyone talks about how well they get along even when females are around. That’s the same with N Avocas.... Dark Mane was bigger but didn’t use his size to bully his two brothers. Mohawk, when he was healthier, didn’t take advantage or beatup Blondie. 

That doesn’t mean though that they are passive. There has not been one instance recorded with the Nkuhuma Male just hanging out with the pride while Mohawk was around.... the subs always left and spent most of 2018-2019 avoiding the Avocas with Nana. Very different from BYM who has been with the Ross Males since he was what... 2.5 years old? That doesn’t mean the Ross Males aren’t dominant... it just means there’s no standard way all males behave. Each situation is different. 

I also think if Dark Mane rejoins, he will be an equal. Yes Mohawk is more volatile, but like I said he didn’t use that to overthrow or dominate Blondie. Instead, he mates just as much and can peacefully feed side by side with his brother as rarely seen in other coalitions..

Volatile is the perfect word to describe Mohawk.

Situation in Kambula pride is still unclear, a lot of spliting and smaller gruops, but it seem that there are 2 main gruops, gruop with few older females with 3 cubs and gruop of subadults and 1-2 older females with them.. Bboys are moving between the 2.

"We saw two young Males in the far south east Sabi Sands, does anyone know these Males?
Maybe Sand River young Males or from the Kruger?"

I think this is the Nkuhuma Male?

I’m not the best at IDs so someone else should confirm:
