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)

Daniel Rosengren: " A pride of lions resting in the Ngorongoro Crater. Like all cats, lions spend most of the day resting, conserving energy for when they need it. Despite being called a crater, the Ngorongoro Crater is not a crater, it is a caldera. The difference? A crater is created by an explosion, like an erupting volcano, or an hard impact, like a meteorite. A caldera is created when a hollow volcano collapses into itself. The Ngorongoro caldera is about 610 meters deep and 2 kilometers wide and the caldera floor is at 1,800 meters above sea level.

The soils in the caldera are very rich in nutrients which makes it extremely rich in wildlife. It has the highest density of large carnivores in the world, mainly hyenas and lions, but also leopards and cheetahs. There are about 7,000 wildebeest in there and they do not take part in the famous wildebeest migration taking place in the neighbouring Serenget and Maasai Mara. There is also a relatively large number of the critically endangered black rhino, but there are no giraffes nor crocodiles in this caldera.
Tanzania. "
