THE OLD KING OF THE JUNGLE.....MASAI MARA (OCT 2011)......(139)

This old lion has a long and well known history and reputation on the plains of Masai Mara who was once in charge of a big pride but was chased away by other young males,his three male cubs accompanied him and they roamed the plains,he took care of these cubs and when they grew up they returned took revenge and reclaimed the lost pride... ...he is I believe known as Notch and has taken charge of a number of prides hence produced a number of off springs who appear to be strong and furious as him...in recent series of Planet Earth Live On BBC they traced his grandson "Moja" with a lone female who hunted alone and fed the little cub.......he might look old and aged but from this picture it shows that the old king can still put up a good fight to defend his pride or territory.......MASAI MARA (OCT 2011)
