The image shows two young brothers at a crucial juncture in their lives. Sometimes when young lions get kicked out of the pride they were born into – generally by their own dad – they team up in their search for new territory. They are generally two to three years old when that happens. These two are about five and shortly after this photo was taken they were attacked by one or two very big lions who were trying to take over their territory. The blond was beaten very badly. We found him two days later hiding out in some bushes badly wounded. The other was nowhere to be found. We left shortly afterwards not knowing what became of them. Africa can be a very cruel place.
