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.

The same can happen here in about 6 months time. I don't see the southern Avocas being able to or wanting to fight 4 full grown males even though one of the four may not be 100%. The Avocas only need to hear 4 male lions roaring to understand that its time for them to move on unless they are extremely aggressive males which I don't think they are. They ran from Charleston in a 2 v 2 situation not too long ago when they are already full grown males.

Agree, takeover doesnt happen over night, in most cases it span over few months of testing strenght and chasing back and forth.

S. Avocas where fairly young when they run away from massive Charlestons (i mean who wouldn't run away from them), but now they are 7 and in their prime years.

We found a coalition of 4 male lions on Saturday morning. We heard them roaring in the early hours of the morning and found them lying in an open area before they got moving.

Injured N'ws boy looks good, it seems that his injury is starting to heal up,injury looks quite dry with no blood anymore around the wound (he looks a bit thin but this was taken before they have a buffalo kill in Sabi Sabi) :

That wound is eventually gonna be his demise unless the intestine gets pushed back in somehow. Otherwise, its gonna be a weakness and the wound will keep getting reopened in fights and while hunting.

It seems like he would have been the most impressive of the group, looks like the tallest one to me.

We'll see, it doesnt bleed anymore, so thats a good step into healing up. Yea he looks quite tall.

They are filling out really well. In a few months they will have the size and confidence to throw their weight around.
