Watch Who Comes Out on Top When Two Brother Lions Clash in a Fury of Powerful Swipes
When we see lion fights, we might be shocked as to why lions that live together fight each other. However, lion fights are actually quite common. Fights happen among males for a variety of reasons, such as territory, food, and mating rights.
Lions Sighting in Africa
The next YouTube video posted at the bottom of this blog post takes us to Africa. The Mapogo Lions YouTube page filmed and shared this video with its subscribers. There are currently over 13,000 subscribers to their channel. And in just a few days since it was last posted, this video has received over 1,000 views.
This YouTube page follows the lives of “Six Mapogo lions and their domination of the Sabi Sand landscape.” The Sabi Sand landscape is a game reserve located in Southern Africa.
At the start of this video posted below, we see that a tour vehicle has stopped to view these lions that are starting to fight. Right off the bat, we see two male lions that are going at it. The one launches himself at the other lion, and they swipe at each other in a fury of paws and claws.
The two lions’ names are Olobor and Oloshipa. They are two black rock males that the Mapogo Lions YouTube channel follows. So, this right off tells us that they know each other. However, just because they know each other doesn’t mean that they won’t still fight.
What Are Black Rock Males?
According to the Masai Mara Holidays, a place where you can vacation and go on a safari, they offer the background on the black rock male lions. “There are also three male coalitions of the Black Rock boys; the Black Rock boys had a one–eyed completely grizzled male (Scarface) that was very famous but passed on, they have multiple prides that they have lured over to include the Black Rock pride.
After a few seconds, we see the one lion return to the other side, where he picks up a piece of meat. It could very well be that this lion was striving to steal the kill of this lion or encroaching on his territory.
