Very sad. One would think, since she made it to be a year old, the odds would be in her favor, but I guess it is a tough life for a lion too. I guess if BB is mating too, perhaps the two will have litters together ?

The older cubs almost look like adult lions and not cubs anymore. If the pride ever gets together, this will be one big mega pride!

Very sad news, but maybe just maybe she is also lost and find her home back just as the five months old cub. Thank you.

Thanks for the update Adam. I have a special interest in this pride since I saw them last August when they were 10 strong. Every time one is lost it breaks my heart. I hope they have better luck in the future.

Unbelievable. Nature is so incredibly cruel! We will never forget the Tailess Female walking to within 10 feet of us, stopping, then lying down for a rest while the cubs played about 100 feet away. It was the first pride sighting on our trip. It will also be remembered as one of our best experiences at Londolozi.

This story is flat out amazing. Thanks so much for bringing this happy memory back for us.

What a sad chapter in the Tsalala pride story.. I hope this New Tailless female can have some new cubs that will survive to carry on her warrior spirit..
Thank you for the post..they are always most welcome.
