Yesterday Lion Guardian Leparakou reported that the male sub adult lion Managop has been spending a lot of time near to the Eselenkei Lion Guardians camp, which is close to Porini Camp in the Selenkay Conservancy.
Managop usually associates with his companion, another sub adult male called Loosiron, but it seems they are spending a little time apart at the moment.
Both Manangop and Loosiron were born in late 2007, and are from the pride of two collared females who often reside in Amboseli National Park, but also go into community land outside the park, sometimes causing problems by taking livestock.
Manangop and Loosiron split from this family in July 2010 and have been mainly found together since then, often in the Selenkay Conservancy, though we think they have ventured far and wide. Manangop’s Maasai name means he who has travelled to many places. We hope he will stay around this area for a while!
