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.

@Tonpa Hopefully we will find where Nukhuma male and Styx Male are currently at. I mean, are they anywhere near the Mhangeni Pride?

Yup, Mantimahles. I hope they stick around somewhere eventually, as that bloodline is not represented in Sabi Sands yet (afaik). And if they turn out like their fathers did, that would two more impresive looking lions and hopefully some good genes for the future generations (besides wider gene pool which is more important thing in the long run).

Talamati Pride could be a good option for Plains Camp males as they currently don't have small cubs. Besides Plain Camps had been seen around the area/near where Talamati Pride was at not long ago.

Since it is present in Birmingham pride then all MAtimba and Birmingham males off spring. Also Avoca males as their fathers came from pride carrying white gene and also were sired by old Ross/Giraffe males who as well carried that gene.

Yeah, and both male and female has to have that gene, and even then its not guarante..

So we in theory might have white lions in Nkuhuma pride, if females have white gene from their fathers and if N. Avocas have white genes..but very unlikely..
