Heart Of A King

Young Styx Male
Sabi Sands, South Africa

Alone since being kicked out of his pride, his life isn't easy. However, so far he's been smart in avoiding the dominant males and I hope he will still be around on my next visit.

I saw him quite a few times while I was staying at Nkorho and even watched him follow a large group of Buffalo before trying his luck and jumping onto the back of one. Unfortunately it was a failed attempt and the herd turned on him and chased him away. Amazing that a young lion would attempt to kill such large and dangerous prey without any help but he's been very successful in the past and hopefully that will continue.
