Hi Lionqueen

Really lovely portrait of the male.

Am wondering about pic no 2 & 3 -- was he lying in mud/dirt somewhere, or has he got mange -- look at his sides?

Was he healthy?

Hope the "sick lion" sightings in the Kgalagadi have not appeareed again.

Thanks for sharing and God bless,

Friedrich von Hörsten

Hi Friedrich.........

Definitely mange.

We saw quite a few lions looking like this. But he was well fed and it did not seem as if he was in bad health.

Will put up some more photos of this big boy now now.

I've often wondered why the lions drink at that little muddy "stream" when there is more water just "next to them????

Then big boy decided that a big boy like him needs a better source of fresh water..........
