Trilogy lion gets himself a girlfriend

These two certainly seem to like each other (although there’s not much to be said for monogamy in the animal world), and we are getting quite used to seeing the big cats of the Klaserie working on growing their families! This male from the Trilogy coalition – identified by his particularly scarred nose – has been seen mating with a Ross Pride breakaway lioness, AND he has been seen hanging out with the Hercules lionesses and their 4 small cubs. This boy is all about sowing his seed, and it is a clear sign that the Trilogy is here to dominate.
