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.

Rest in peace beautiful maned Snyggve! 

He wasn't as lucky as his father C-Boy was with/against his own rival coalition named the 4 'Killers' a decade before...
At least, he didn't suffer a lot, didn't survive and wasn't in agony for days or much more, he has died within hours. And from now, he can roam the "Sky (Namiri) Plains" along with his original brother - who has lost very soon - and also with his very faithful coalition partner in the last years: Tryggve. Who also has fallen by the same cruel coalition, it is assumed. 

Here is a very great photo of a much younger but already very beautiful Snyggve with meaningful looking from his heydays (and probably still with his original brother) in his memory:

Great photo of him as a young boy! Hope we get to see their sons grow up and take some prides too. I bet they will be just as impressive!

Agreed, hope the C-Boy male lineage is continue. I think, Snyggve&Tryggve should already have some more elder young adult descendants of their 7-year rule.

Anyway, is there anybody who know the Serengeti lions better? I have a special question:
There was a great documentary on Nat Geo around 2010 with a well-known title as 'Super Pride'. According to them, the pride live(d) its life somewhere in the central parts of Serengeti and they had 2 stronge pride males (according to them, they were at about their 8 years, but I doubt it, they seemed younger to me). Does anybody know who were them? 
One of them was a very beautiful specimen with a quite dark mane and with something special 'black hoops' around his both eyes (not injuries). I would really like to know who was he/them. Here is a screenshot of him:

And you can see him/them in a shortened version of this documentary from a form of Nat Geo's Channel immediately at the start and they also can be seen better at 4:00 minutes:

Or in this version of the documentary at about 0:50 seconds:

I would be very grateful if somebody could help me in this...
