Pics: Lions fight to be king of the Jungle in brutal battle captured on camera

These amazing photos show two lions as they fought to be the King of the Jungle and also for the attention of a lioness in Masa Mara, Kenya and luckily for us photographers were there to take some unbelievable snaps.

The two male lions, who are actually brothers, were captured on camera by Laurent Renaud and Dominique Haution, who are French seasoned safari photographers.
"When lions want to overtake a pride, the old lions fight with the new ones. But seeing two lion brothers fighting, one against the other is a very rare sighting. We were very lucky to witness it, and both lions unfortunately ended up with serious wounds. But that's just what happens in the wild and we would never interfere with nature." Laurent said
She also said just 15 minutes after the lions finished scrapping, the triumphant brother went and mated with his lioness as a prize. See photos of the fight after the cut...

This is what happens when power is the deciding factor for social hierarchy, instead of logic and reasoning, morals and the love for one another.... or what do you think?

We aren't that much different from each other! We all grovel for the attention of the opposite sex, we all fight for positions in the society, even against friends and brothers, at least they are honest about it! No rigging! Unlike we humans. On another note, lions are majestic animals!!!!

Not easy to be the king.

They are known as the kings in the jungle, now they are practising territoriality within themselves. This is POLITICS - fight for supremacy and power... And fight for a woman's heart.

This fights happen when a lion king from a pride decides to take over another pride ruled by another lion king. it then boils down to a brutal battle which often leads to death. The victor takes charge of the pride.

Injuries are being inflicted in which probable death must have occured while to us humans it was a sight to behold?? Well, who am I to oppose, that's how God created the wild! But permit me to be indifferent of the fact that it was a lovely sight to behold!

When men were men and the most formidable and strongest wrestled to determine who takes the beautiful bride. Not any more when money is the deciding factor where u see ugly weaklings and the limp covet the most beautiful queens.
