New on 500px : Alpha male. by MarkWiseman1 by MarkWiseman1

This is the alpha male of the Rooiputs pride. He is much smaller than Ash?Mufasa jnr, but he is packed with aggression and was chasing a subadult male lion for trying to sneak a bite from an eland kill. To see this lion running at full pace was something to behold. His fully extended front paws are the size of dinner plates and his front legs the size of my legs. Power and speed in abundance.
