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.

Clash of the young princes.

It is natural for young male lions to leave their matriarchal prides and venture into the unknown, looking for future territories of their own.

The youngsters from both the Blackdam and Monwana prides have reached an age where their size and confidence allows them to explore, and a recent meeting at a kill became increasingly tense.

Note: there were 6 males and 1 female from the Blackdam Pride, and 3 young males from the Monwana Pride.

Position young Monwana boys found themselfs in is really bad. Xikukutsus and Mapoza pushed them from northern Thorynbush into south and there are older and numerically superior Black Dam broke away. Monwanas need to move further as there is no place for them in southern Thorynbush. Those 6 Blackdam male are very capable of killing younger Monwanas.

Portrait of the Young Birmingham male lion! 
He's walking much better in these days. He seems that is putting  more weight on his leg,which indicates that he probably will healed.
Perhaps not at the 100% but 70% "in brute" should be accurate and correct,anyway the legs injured mostly seen on the male lions has just a way,getting worse with the pass of the time and while the years passes they will worse even more until the demise of the lion... I hate say predictions ut while the years have passed a lot of lions have died by the same cause,Sizanani,Avoca/Giraffe,Hip-Scar Majingilane etc etc.

These gorgeous lion cubs have been stealing the show at our Safari Trails camp recently, cared for by their mothers and two, watchful pride males.
Lion cubs have a tough life growing up and face a high mortality, often falling victim to disease, injuries, lack of food, or infanticide by male lions after a pride takeover. If they can survive to independence, young males will often disperse around the age of 3 years old whereas young females tend to remain in their mother's pride.
