Great blog Amy and I love the pictures. I hope they will continue to do well and grow into strong, powerful adults just like their fathers are. I first saw them as very small cubs, struggling to keep up with the rest of the pride, so I’m very happy to see that they have done so well to survive.

most people including those who go to safari or are into so called wildlife do not know survival rate of lions or leopards is really low to zero . and if they are male , well they will be ousted by their dad if they are lucky. if not they will be killed by invading males.

and all the risk and injuries a lion or any predator must go thru just to get a meal. if the number of the clan of hyenas is high , their much needed hard earned meal will be taken away . and if they are really unlucky , cubs nearby will be torn or eaten alive .

and no one ever think about what does truly happen to aged or aging lioness or leopard or cheetah . like old folks these cats will loose some teeth , bad joints or broken bones and weaken muscles and slower speed along with poorer eye sight. an aging professional football player at least has doctors and retirement funds to care for him , but not an old lioness or leopard. old lioness often if not killed by new male or ousted by her own daughter or her own son or be kept out from a small meal.

It’s hard to believe that those cute cuddly little cubs are turning into those great big Majingilane offspring. They are simply stunning just like their dads and half Sparta brothers. I hope they stay safe. An update on the Sparta boys would be great to hear about too. Wondering if have they officially left the Sparta pride. Great blog!!

Amy,
Great pictures. I remember that last one where the young males were hanging behind and playing with one of the young lionesses while the older lionesses were crossing. Such a great experience for us. Great memories.
