The King of the Jungle

The only animal that creep me up… being around with, and windowless in the Land Rover; was the lioness. You know they mean business when you see her walking towards you. It is not in vane that they are the most feared Africa’s predators.

El único animal que me espanto por tan cerquita en la Land Rover sin ventanas fue la Leonesa, nada más las ves caminar hacia ti y sabes que van en serio. No es en balde que ellas sean las más temidas de todos los depredadores en Africa.

The lioness are the ones who hunt and after feeding themselves and the cubs of the pride, that is a group of Lioness and all the offspring with few males around. The King of the Jungle eats the leftovers.

Ellas son la que cazan y después de alimentarse ellas y sus crios de la manada, la mayoría formada de Leonesas con un puñado de Leones. El Rey de la Selva se come lo que sobra.

The life cycle once again shows itself as we can see this cub feeding on Wilderbeest carcass, after all the Lioness have had their breakfast.

La vida continua y en su ciclo nos mustra a este cachorro alimentandose con despojos de “Ñu” o Wilderbeest, después de que las cazadoras desayunaran.

All the activities of the big cats start in the early morning so I had to left the “Intrepid Mara Lodge” every morning at six. After the morning activities this Lioness rest on the bush shadow, resting for her next kill.

Los gatos son más activos en las mañanas y en las tardes, asi que hay que salir bien temprano a las seis del “Lodge Intrepid Mara.” Leonesa descansando a la sombra de un arbusto, preparandose para su suguiente cacería.

As noted before the conflict between the tribes around the National Reserve specifically the Massai and Samburu people against Nature had turned ugly as they had opted to use Furadan a powerful chemical as poisson to clear the once King of the jungle out their way. They look for greener pasture for their cattle, but if they venture where the Lions live and hunt is obvious the end result, they argument is that the protected area are not fenced, “Early this year two Lionesses’s bodies and one young male were found dead at Lemek area, in the “Massai-Mara” ecosystem.” Leonard Korir/The Standard, Nairobi, Kenya. 10/07/2010

Como lo señale anteriormente el conflicto entre las tribus y la Naturaleza alrededor del ecosistema de “Massai-Mara-Serenguethi” especialmente de los Massai y los Sumburu; el conflicto se ha tornado criminal, cuando estas tribus han optado por envenenar al otrora “Rey de la Selva” par eliminaro por la competencia de pastura verde para sus vacas. Pero si elos llevan sus rebaños a donde viven los Leones es obvio el resultado final. Las tribus argumentan que la Reserva Nacional no esta bardeada. ” Al principio de año, se encontraron con dos cuerpos de Leonesas y un León joven en el area conocida como Lemek, en el ecosistema del “Massai Mara.” Leonard Korir/The Standard, Nairobi, Kenya. 10/07/2010
