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.

The legendary lion, Bob, of the coalition Bob & Ziggy who spent part of his life in the “Namiri Plains” died a few days ago. This is terrible and heart-breaking news. This lion (assumed 15 years of age) was not only famous among our guides and guests but was legendary. 

We will all truly miss him.

He's the one formerly known as C-Boy. The photographer said in another comment that his brother was seen yesterday, but it seems they've lost their territory.

Remembering an African Lion That Defied Death

Ran into above moving tribute to C-Boy and found an answer to my own question: it seems that Hildur was still alive at the time of C-Boys death. Both were remarkable lions.

Some great video of serengeti lions, just the cats and the sound of nature. Headphones recommended.

Great find Sully. I think the males are C-Boy and Hildur. C-Boy died last year and Hildur was I think alive at the time. Magnificent lions though.

@Sully :

About #114: rather windy the Serengeti park ! But a very good video, these lions are beautiful, and to feel "immersed" among them is fascinating.... No one other animal (except a very short moment with the warthog driven out of its hole). I suppose it has been filmed during a long drought period (only small preys eaten, very short grass...).

Meet Hildur, who managed to be strong despite being skinny, and would make long runs to a pride: https://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2013/0...on/100570/

This might sound strange, but just as the heaviest wild tiger on record was a Bengal tiger from north India which was shot by David Hassinger in 1967, and had a weight of 388.7 kg (857 lbs) after eating a mere buffalo calf, without which it might have weighed at least 324 kg (714 lbs), the heaviest wild lion to my knowledge was not a man-eating Transvaal lion from South Africa in 1936 with a weight of 313 kg (690 lbs), but 1 of 2 Tanzanian lions which weighed 700 and 800 pounds (320 and 360 kg) after killing 244 cattle and 3 donkeys at the village of Issuna in the central region of Singida in 1963!
