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.

We recently had one of the Thumbela males mating with the Ottawa female. This happened even though she herself had young cubs already. Perhaps this is to ensure that the males know that these cubs are theirs and thereby reducing the chance that he kills the cubs.

Are we sure it isnt just Auntie still trying despite infertile?

If not. It probably is more to prevent the males from abanding the pride to seek sex elsewhere.

From this angle, Look like the cubless Othawa female. So, you could be correct

It’s Sassy guys.  Are we sure this is recent?   Just too unusual of behavior to me to be recent.

I’m horrible at understanding how to make comments here.  I tried to delete my earlier post cause now they’re saying it’s lady Tsalala. I understand we’re just using their information

Well. If they need adding such outlandish theories to explain what they see. We can be excused in wondering if they didn't just misidentify the lioness.

It happens.

Yeah it would make way more sense if it would have been in fact Tsalala lionesses.

Thanks for sharing @Tonpa  Scar is still skinny but looks much better than he has in past month.   He’s also patrolling which is a great sign.  Limper is likely with Pride recovering from that paw injury

Interestingly in the comments of this post someone asks about skinnys condition and omegagodi replied that he fought with HB 

"fought with matimba male and never recovered and his developed disease"

Its the first and only time I heard of it. The only fight I know of was just a very minor scrap about food.
