Artist's Description

This is Mr.T one of the most notorious lions(Panthera leo) of the Sabi Sands game reserve.This was taken 3 and a half years ago ,found it in my archives.The mapogos were a coalition of male lions that controlled the Sabi Sands for 6 years until they lost the battle of survrvial of the fittest.There are now only 2 survivors(Makulu and Pretty Boy) and are intermittently seen but still around but don`t have a territory.Mr.T was also known as Mohawk to some and has this distinctive mohawk hair style and nose abnormality probably as a consequence of a fight.He was killed by the Selati coalition of now 4 lions near Ulusaba around 6 months ago.The Selati`s are also known as the southern males . We were fortunate to see Mr.T many times during visits to the Sabi Sands over the years,sleeping,fighting with siblings for mating rights, mating,and making a live buffalo kill.The Mapogo coalition also killed many lions in the area in their quest for dominance hence their notoriety!!
