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.

Both young females are seen in Singita regularly.
If as their evolution progresses, coalitions between unrelated male lions are frequent, can those between females be too?
This situation is much rarer, it is possible that lionesses are instinctively less apt to consider this.
Is it not to be feared that these two young females will confront or avoid each other rather than coalescing?

I do not think it is and issue for the potential join of forces.

It would be awesome if all those 3 females would join forces. What a story that would be.

Female nomadic lions are very rare compared to the dime a dozen male coalitions.  
Unlike males, which are very clearly chased out of their natal pride. Their departure often is a lot more murky aswell. 
Its possible that the Tsalala cub is still waiting for her mother to show up, while Gingerella still has hope of joining the Othawas. Both would not be willing to consider forming a new pride until those hopes are completely destroyed.

Being cubs, their first instinct would be to hide if they ran in each other. But events like accidentally hunting the same prey or feeding together from a large food source like a death elephant may loosen the two to eachother.

The Mhangeni pride were successful on their morning hunt, catching a large warthog in one of the open clearings.

Its good to see those two together. 

Though if the Ximhungwe lioness is pregnant again, she will later leave Gingerella to give birth and nurture the cubs. I hope their bonds survive that period of seperation.

Clearly we can see suckle marks on her belly. She probably will give birth in a week or two given she was mating with Limper in October

So it seems the mother of the youngest Kambula subadults is now ready to mate as well.

Or that other females are back in estrus, if they lost their cubs (only 2 cubs seen recently since N'ws invade)..

She doesn't look big enough yet, does she?  The Tsalala lioness looked like she was carrying a dozen cubs before she was killed.

Now if the young Tsalala lioness would just run into these two and not be seen as a threat, and eventually welcomed, that would be FANTASTIC!
Almost like an instant pride.
