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 Strike Force in Masai Mara. The Salas Males who have a strong bond enabled them to confront and destroy whatever hinders their success.

As a solo male, relying entirely on himself, there is nothing that can be a barrier between him and what this king wants!

Beast Mood.

The Famous nomadic male Bob Marley, one of the legends of Masai Mara, this fabulous shot was taken of him trying to catch a warthog from his hole in the mud! The operation lasted hours of hard work, but the old boy did not give up until he grabbed the neck of what he had tired of. He is over 13 years old. A living legend deserving of praise.

Legends never die.
Here, the majestic, the veteran, the warrior! All words of success will not all describe his achievements!
The legend Lolparpit, one of the most successful lions in Mara, died in November 2020 at age of almost 16 yrs old. Leaving behind him the most widespread, powerful and numerous offsprings in Mara! This is what makes the lion a true legend.

RIP Legend!

An interesting video on older generation of Mara lions who are holding on, despite being surrounded by younger male coalitions.

Lolparpit and Olbaranoti, the undisputed legends. The great duo who shared a close brotherly bond. Both males lived a storied life full of adventure, battles and love, leaving a big legacy spread all over the Mara in the form of many current dominant males and lioness. Incredible coalition. At the age of 15 Lolparpit single-handedly defended his territory against two of the fiercest lions who passed by and did not surrender to them, Kaka and Maridadi.. He lived after this incident for a year and eventually died from an injury that occurred during the quarantine, which appears to be from a hunting accident, which led to a fracture in his hip. While his loyal brother disappeared shortly after his brother's death on the nomadic road..to live out his remaining days as a nomadic lion, he was last seen several months ago and was in good health then! But not seen again after that.. Here is the legends "Lolparpit" right and his brother Olbaranoti "left" in a great picture that commemorates their beautiful memory..

Lolparpit and Olbarnoti, they were also younger brothers to Cheza, Junior, and Sala of Big Cat Diary (I think that was the name).  They were the next litter of Cubs so they were not featured on the film. That also means that they are, I assume, half brothers or cousins to Scar and the Musketeers as Cheza sired them supposedly. Huge legacy they left for sure!
