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.

Lions of Tanzania (Serengeti, Ngorongoro and others)

There are 3-4 prides inside the crater, whether they are inbred is another story, they probably are, it's not easy for lions to get to the crater from the Serengeti, they need to travel through some Masai grazing grounds and villages, its also a long journey and the odds aren't in their favor. They real should transolcate a few prides. The crater isn't that large but I was amazed at how close prides live to one another.

After two days of rain in the Ndutu area of the Serengeti, the sun finally rose. We came across two lions sleeping by a large puddle. Most of the cars parked relatively close to the lions, trying to get a close up shot; we were the only ones to look at the lions from a distance - our bonus was the reflection...  
Sometimes we need to open our eyes, “zoom out”, and not follow the crowd or the instinct of trying to get as close to the animal as possible – you may add an interesting angle to your shot, and you won’t bother the animal…
Have a lovely and peaceful weekend!

Cool, did you go to the crater at all?
I was there a little over a year ago, such a cool place.
