'IN PROGRESS" Oil on Linen 18x52

Kathleen V. Butts Wildlife Artist
Between the age of two and four, male lions leave their pride. A single male, or a set of brothers, who generally stay together for life, may become nomads, or join a coalition of nomadic males. A larger coalition is likely to maintain a higher position than a smaller one, some may include as many as nine males. They will hunt game the females may leave alone. Prime years for males is from five to nine but are the strongest and fittest between five and six. The area I have put these five males is The Etosha Pan.
