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.

Actually, Sizanani and his lame brother weren't the only ones who survived the Mapogo onslaught.  It is thought that a couple of other cubs might have made it, too, including his sister or cousin 'Nana', mother of the lone Nkuhuma Male and his littermate sister.

Yes that video is misleding in multiple ways. The buffalo takedown is not him either. Incomplete info regarding his descendants. Lame music even over sightings. That channel aims as the lowest common denominator.

Nah, after they passed through there was a male contact calling for quite a while, but he never travelled on the same path they did and presumably went around the area


Video of the pride

Tintswalo just posted on FB 

"Two new males have been roaring from Kruger to the east of the Manyeleti, prompting the big Imbali Male to send his own message back!" 

With a video of the S8 male roaring, should be the two Kruger males they are referring to.

I'm not defending anyone but in the original footage it appears it is Sizanani as it was mentioned in the comment saying it was him and Skorro. I dont care either way but was just curious and remembered watching the footage of the takedown.

To me it seems obvious Skorro is the one making the kill and Sizanani joineds him at the kill at the end. That is how I always remembered it and till yesterday I never had seen a source claiming it vice versa. But I can be mistaken, I just don't know how.

I guess that was again Amahle and Eorenji, hopefully Gore and Ubuso bounce back, regain their health and stick with their brothers , as for now it's only 2/4 males at peak conditon patrolling Malamala

I dont know from where you are getting that Ubuso is "thin" more then usually, he was never as bulky as 2 healthy N'ws.


Lets not start another narrative that 2 N'ws are "dying" because they are "apperantly" skinnier then usual (althrough recent photos are not good to even judge that). 

This is wild, lions dont get food on regular basis, all lions have their "up and downs" / "bulky and skinny" phase's.

Same goes for comments about DM Avoca, because he was seen "skinnier" then usually, ofc he will be skinnier if he doesnt eat for few days (for whatever reason).. 

So lets not overreact if some lion is seen more "thin" sometimes, thats normal if its not prolonged.
