Oh, its only sister Emily.

Pride members often wander around alone or in small groups. Roaring allows them to keep in contact with each other and with the rest of the pride. Research has shown that lions are able to differentiate between roars of companions and strangers and can also estimate group sizes from a chorus of roars. Notice the crease up his right side. That could have been an old wound from a Cape Buffalo horn. Buffalo is among the favorite prey of lions, however, one lion cannot take down a Cape Buffalo. It takes a number of pride members working as a team. There is nothing like turning in at night, or waking up in the morning, to the grunts of hippos, trumpet of elephants and the roar of lions. It is a very special, and unforgetable experience.
