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.

Lions seee people in vehicles as one metal, not eatable think and therefore shows no intrest in them. If people would be just walking the road out of vehicle then that would be a different story.

But don’t they do that in sabi sands I’ve seen it many times the guide and the guests are all out of the vehicle walking around or eating how do they know it’s safe?

Around the time Dark Mane Avoca died from the buffalo attack I had mentioned a video showing Pretty Boy getting smashed by buffalo and apparently this was one of the incidents to why he got the name Phoenix.

I was asked if I had the clip to post in mapago thread as some might not have seen it but couldn't find it at the time but by luck I found it today. The footage starts at 12:03. Quite brutal to watch.

PB looked as dead as you can get in that clip, the fact he survived without permanent damage is insane.

Wow, simply amazing stuff. I agree, his moniker of Pheonix was most deserved. What a remarkable lion he was.

I do remember you mentioned this video. DM was a little worse but it is impressive how PB survived.

Thank you very much, my friend @afortich, it feels really good to be back. Just trying to get back into the swing of things, it's a long and slow process.

Manghenis in 2017 by Promise Mashile:

The one on the left reminding me of Makhulu, the one on the right has a similar facial structure/head shape to Auntie Othawa IMO, Auntie who had a very distinct face and weird head shape, but I could never convince myself of who I thought was most likely to be her father and my best guess is Kinky Tail who sometimes looks like he has a similar head shape.

Now this one \/

Reminding me of the one and only Mr.T:

That Mangheni had a long thin head like Mr.T and looked slit-eyed. Both Mr.T and KT sometimes displayed very similar eyes.

talking about the clip of the pretty boy being attacked by a herd of buffaloes and getting gored from all angles without taking any damage, it's amazing, what impresses me is that he survives and he wasn't even an adult lion, and even more that he survived attacks by several lions at that time rasta and him disappeared and also pretty boy in 2012 old probably with bovine tuberculosis and old and was attacked by 4 lions and survived even so , this shows the resilience and resistance and incredible durability of a lion , the mapogos they are all different!
