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.

Also not in the frame, but Caesar was 8-9 years old, he also probably had a little stomach content as they had killed a hippo earlier that week, but as he’s always heavy. 

Not 100% comfirmation, but this guy seems very legit. And I know that he follows Masai Mara lions, and about Caesar being weighed. 
Big lion for sure.

Wow! If that's true then he'd beat or atleast match (depending on stomach content) Koch's 270kg male.

Are you waiting for further confirmations?

No he didn't Know more about it, measurements etc. only the weight :)
Also to get any information from Masai Mara is a pain in the a** I have searched info I know exists for years, but I have hardly found a thing.

No, i meant from the person that got transferred. One who took the weight?

This could be the new highest weight recorded in lions, if you can get it confined than that's be really big news!

I have no idea who he is, he worked for a vet team in the Masai Mara, that vet team is almost impossible to get any info from (I belive it’s the Sky vets). I have tried many times, belive me. 
But this guy had a some inside info. As he spends a lot of his time in the Mara and arranges trips there. 
So no I have no clue about it, nor do I think we will ever get it.

We stumbled on this info as it’s actually my older brother who found it as he enquierd about info on an upcoming Mara trip we have planned. And I told him to ask about Caesar. Coincidence for sure.
