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.

"A new male lion seen recently on the Waterside property not too far from @royalmalewane @theroyalportfolio. It will be interesting to see his movements over the next couple months."

So this may be the 3rd Black Dam pride young male showing up recently in that area. They are Giraffe male's sons. Originally six boys. Not sure why they were separated.

Tanda Tula update

The lions were far less active this week, and following their zebra kill last week, the Mayambula Pride cut straight through our concession in one day.  They returned a few days later, but their actions were no different, and the six lionesses and one male marched with purpose through the area and headed off to the east.  The two Skorro males were roaring last night, but it seems that they too followed the pride out east.  The four Sark breakaway lionesses were present for a day in the west, and further west some members of the Giraffe lost a zebra kill to the hyenas, but none of our guides headed down to see them.  The River Pride left tracks within our concession one evening, but they remained quite settled several kilometres to the north of our traversing area, and at present, there doesn’t seem to be any reason for them to return south.  Hopefully the Mayambula lionesses do settle into more stable and predictable movements, at the moment their presence is seemingly less certain than it was a couple of weeks back.

Could be the Xikukutsu males trying to oust giraffe male and takeover Black Dam Pride?

The Giraffe male isn't anymore dominant over the Black dam pride. I heard he was found dead near where the Black dam young males used to hang out. The Mapoza and the Xikukutsu males have took-over the Black dam pride a few months ago

Yea, Xikukutsus where mating with BDP for quite some time now, which indicates that Giraffe male is no longer dominant of them for quite some time , his last sighting was over 1 year ago..

Any ideas who this is? He was with the Ngati pride (the pride we see in Pridelands, Balule on WildEarth) Is it one of the Sark Males? 
Anton Lategan (the photographer) said he was 1 of 2 males who was with them the day before yesterday
Not the best picture sorry

Yes, this is one of the Sark/Masungulo males. They're dominant over the Southern/Ngati pride since June 2020 more or less, perhaps, earlier as well.
