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.

BA0701 i had no idea this was Loonkito! One of the most brutal fights I've watched!
His teeth are in damn good shape for his age. Amazing. I don't think there's as many young male lions and coalitions roaming around Amboselli as there are in the Mara or Kruger tho. Still amazing lion he is! I remember when I 1st watched that fight a few years ago!

En un mes iré a Amboseli. ¿Alguien podría decirme por qué zona del parque suele deambular Loonkito?

The king of the jungle is being beaten by his lionesses.

Great recent sighting of one of the three SOPA males “ Mandevu “ got beaten by the Black Rock pride who believe that the fight happened around a fresh kill, he was severely beaten and unfortunately he maybe lost one of his testicles according to the Photography.

Masai Mara, Kenya.

Vets treated Mandevu and yup, he lost 1 of his nuggets. Hopefully he doesn't gain tons of excess weight like Cesaer Notch when he lost a ball. Amazing how a gang of mad females can put down a beating!

I read that he doesn't spend nearly as much time with the pride as the other males, so the females are actually treating him like an outsider now.  If he's that much of a loner, he sure doesn't need to pretend that he also controls/protects the pride, enjoying the spoils they earn for themselves.

Averigue que en el 2020 vivia en la zona de kitirua conservancy de wild Amboseli National Park que parece estar en Kenya.

TRANSLATION

Nomad question: someone could tell me the area of the park that Loonkito usually roams??

afortich answer: I found out that in 2020 Loonkito was roaming/living around the area of kitirua conservance in the Ambodeli National park in Kenya.

Anyone please feel free to correct my answer above if there is any error. Thanks!

I actually posted the incredibly brutal fight that is shown in this video, but at the time I was not aware of who the two males were. From my understanding a fight with the outsider male killed Loonkito's brother, and Loonkito finished the fight, in what is likely the most brutal lion fight I have seen. What a legend Loonkito is, however, as the video points out, there is a real downside to having a male with such longevity, and that is the harm inflicted on the gene pool, since he is now mating with his daughters and granddaughters.





What a hell of a fight. One on one. Nice video!
