The Mapogos overcome their initial inexperience and develop their hunting skills. The young hunters learn how to work as a group — taking down buffaloes, rhinos, giraffes, and hippos.
By 2006 the Mapogo lions start taking over more and more of the Northern Sabi Sands area. They get the nickname of the six gangsters and they clear their path, taking out any dominant males that dare to challenge them. Their brutality decimates the local lion population.
The two breakaway Mapogos get challenged by a new coalition, threatening to overthrow their reign of terror. On the 8th of June the Majinglianes enter the scene, 5 male lions tackling the North Eastern section of the Sabi Sands. Kinky Tail and Mr T must defend their territory. A brutal fight ensues and they still manage to successfully defend their territory, killing one of their challengers.
