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.

Big coalitions sire waaay more cubs to adulthood then smaller coalition or alone males,because they will most likely never lose their territory and those cubs have higher chance to succeed and survive. So idk how that isnt helping for species. 

Yes they will  prob kill few lions in takeover but thats how it is, they will most likely sire many more then they've killed. And those lions which they kill, prob did the same to other lions, thats how it is for thousands of years. 

For the stronger genes point, all lions who reach adulthood are strong, which is like 20% of cubs, theres no weak genes there and coalitions have nothing to do with that.
so there are no stronger Lion and weaker Lion ? they all are equal ? a solo pride male would raise just as many cubs if there was no gangs to dethrone them , but he would be the strongest and fittest around . and when the male was eventually ousted he would be alive , along with tons of other males that didn't get jumped . just my theory , but i guess it doesn't matter cus coalitions rule

You are both right. Bigger, stronger coalitions are creating chaos in lion population killing many of the, but also bring stability afterwards, allowing their own offspring to reach adulthood. 

"a solo pride male would raise just as many cubs if there was no gangs to dethrone them , but he would be the strongest and fittest around"

The point is that it is nothink more than wishfull thinking. It just isn't how it works in lion world.

The king strolls through his territory making his presence know to the rest of the world. The power and confidence with which he moves is inspiring.
