Notch, King of the Mara

Lion (Panthera leo massaicus)
Paradise Plain, Masai Mara (Kenya)
September 2009

Notch was the Marsh/Bila Shaka pride male until he was deposed by a coalition of 3 males in 2007.

Two years on, at about 9 years old and past his prime, he has formed a powerful coalition with five of his sons.  Notch truly is 'The King of the Mara'.
