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.

Young Talamati males are also sired by Matimbas.. 3 of them..
When they were in Charleston territory, they were attacked by dominant males and got scattered.
Somehow one of the Talamati males ended up with 3 Young Mhangeni males and now they are coalition of 4. (Recently one of the young Mhangeni males seems to be missing)
The other 2 Talamati males seems to have entered Kruger

The Southern Pride cubs eventually managed to push one of the adult females away from their buffalo kill so they could feed in her spot!

What sex you mean?

I still don't know, or at least haven't seen any reference to it. But soon they'll grow a bit bigger and then it will be easier to tell.

2 males , 1 female

therefore it makes them 
3 males and 2 females including the older cubs

I wished there were some more female cubs to secure the existence of the Othawa Pride.

According to this article, "The Styx pride have three cubs that were sired by the nomadic Nkuhuma male, and they have done a great job of evading the territorial dominant males and raising the cubs to about seven months old thus far.". I assume they are referring to Junior of the nkuhuma pride? seems a bit odd.

Yup, Also looks like one of the females can't reproduce and can not have cubs
I think the older female cub will survive... If Majis hang for some more time the younger cubs will survive..
Also The subadult male looks really good... but his future is bleak as he may be kicked-out alone from the pride..

I Think the nomadic is son of Blondie and Dozie..
I don't think it's Junior, he is not matured to have sired cubs almost 9-10 months ago...
Are the subadults they referring are sired by Majis?
