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.

So no one of theses cubs survives as we know, Charleston males resting in Kruger was a disaster for Selati pride.
And as for Charleston male, no news for long time now, maybe that Mazino is no alone anymore...
I remember when i first arrive on wildfact there was an alert on the site about Mazino caught on a snare, i will never forget that moment.
Rest in peace Mazino, your bloodline is living.

It wasn’t a snare though, turned out to be a porcupine quill

Most likely not, he was not seen for over half a year, as you can see he was looking quite rough on those last photos, and after that Snip Tailed Mpondo was seen with his pride.

True Beast!
One of the mighty Charleston males who made their unforgettable mark at Sabi Sands.

He was found two years ago with a broken back at Kruger and unable to move as he was freed from his agony with a merciful bullet, legends never die!
RIP King Mazino

Sabi Sands, South Africa.
