"The lake Quintet brothers (coalition) 

Pictures of Lk116, LK115, LK117 & LK123 respectively around jackal hill area, LK120 (titan jr) was mating with a female in the picture!!

So after the gene flow coalition of four brothers took over munge pride, they went on to lake pride and that’s where lake Quintet brothers were born in 2013, in 2015 Gene and Genovo disappeared by being victims to fights with other invading males,the remaining two Eugene and Genius were dominant and seen in the crater until they also disappeared around March 2018.!! The gene flow coalition were famous for taking down big games such as buffaloes!! One year prior to the disappearance of Eugene and Genius in 2017 5 young males were seen trying to gain dominance in the crater, and it was the handsome 5 Quintet brothers,!! How did they gain so much dominance, the story continues….!!

In 2017 the lake Quintet brothers took over lakette pride then munge mabinti pride, then went on to take over lagunita pride and ousted Hijalmar the dreadful (mg106) (a munge pride male born 2010) and in the process of takeover they killed a well known male named Kijana (non crater male),then they were dominating the three prides at a time, killed all the cubs at lagunita pride and started siring their own quickly!! They were as ruthles as their fathers, Hijalmar the dreadful (mg106) moved to ndutu marsh area more than 60kilometers from ngorongoro crater and was seen with another coalition partner around 2020!!
It didn’t stop there the Lake Quintet brothers continued expanding their dominance, the story continues…!!!"

The lake Quintet brothers (coalition)

"Recent Pictures of a female with cubs around jackal hill!! The story continues, The Lake Quintet brothers then went on and took over munge pride, recently it’s common to see them around munge area, jackal hill, miti mitatu, ngoitoktok area and lake area, despite the stability in crater, adolescent males are pushed out and other males can’t get in the crater to get a look in!! The Lake Quintet brothers are now 10 years old!! Maybe soon or later they will be ousted by another coalition that might come outside ngorongoro crater and overpower them, but the Quintet brothers pose a threat to any invader due to their number (5 brothers) which give them an advantage!! Recently I have seen females with cubs around Jackal hill (in pictures I shared) and pregant females around munge area all this by the lake Quintet Brothers!! Speculations has it that females are loosing interests with their handsome Quintets but I doubt that with what is going on.!! That is a short story of the Lake Quintet Brothers that rule the ngorongoro crater!!"

LK120, one of the five Lake Quintet males from Ngorongoro Crater. These guys have ruled all the prides in the Crater for 6 years and they are 10 years old.

There’s LK115, LK116, LK117, LK120 and LK121, they quickly gained dominance in the Crater yeaes ago that ultimately led to the takeovers of the Lakette pride, Munge and Mabinti pride, Mabiniti pride currently is the biggest pride in the Crater with approximately 17 members.

The Ngorongoro Crater is currently home of 65-75 lions with eight prides in total. While some of the successive young males left the Crater to frequently push into the Ndutu Conservation area (this had been witnessed with the Munge males and the Lagunita males) - possibly also to avoid the competition with the resident Crater pride males - the majority of the prides is shared between the two major coalitions, Lake Quintet and the Lake Trio.

I am never one to comment on the pretty-ness of a lion's appearance because to me that's the least important attribute but holy cow these boys with their mane looks like they just came from the salon

@Ngonya I don't have id pics for them yet. But I have updates recently. Bk the most dominate Saba Bora was too aggressive and the other 5 have split from him and one male apparently left the coalition all together and joined another coalition. So the coalition is starting to fall a part. Il try get more updates but this is the last thing I got from Simba last week. Lake Quintet are all alive still and there should be id pics for all will try that some time.

As far as i know they were 9 originally, but 2 of them have broken away from the core coalition or died since then, so i think there should be 7 at max for now.
