I am a real king of the jungle!! by 

This is one of the 4 members of the selati coalition of male lions(Panthera leo).He is a true KING of the jungle as he and his brothers control a territory in the Sabie Sands game reserve which they fight to keep on a daily basis and he has the scars to prove it.He is not a "pseudo " king who lives in captivity and poses for photographers in a zoo to make it easy for them.!!This was taken after dark as he woke up and was starting to patrol his territory and perhaps go on a hunt.The only light present was the search light of the tracker,not easy to focus and take photos of a moving animal in darkness with limited opportunities to focus.

    He just needs a crown to go with all the scars. He is certainly regal! Love it!
