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.

Well I've got my answer to the question. Sunquist says "by the time cubs are four months old, they are able to outrun lions and spotted hyenas". Earlier than I expected.

Still not early enough, though. Cheetah cubs are preyed upon by all kinds of predators in Africa, so much so that 90% of cubs don’t reach maturity while about 60% don’t reach 4 months. This is a huge challenge in improving Cheetah numbers in Africa.

what determines a male lion's territory ? does he claim an area and mate with females that wander into his turf  ? or is territory established by the pride as a group and the males take ownership of their territory ? 

this video is of 2 males chased by 4 males , the 4 end up catching the fleeing pair and put a relatively light beating on one of them . but my question is why the hell would he stop running ? maybe they were nomads and the punishment for them is not as severe as lions challenging for dominance ? or maybe they were not in good enough health to outrun the pursuers ? seems to me it is best not let them catch you

this one too , the old male is outpaced by two lions that catch him . my question here is why not back into a bush or something to defend yourself ? he had plenty of time

is there a section on here dedicated to identifying lions ?
