desert adapted
lion habitat

The Desert Adapted Lions originate from the Etosha and surrounds and mostly dispersed from their natal prides to find their own home ranges in times of plenty. In earlier times the migration routes for animals between the Etosha pans and the dry Kaokoveld/Damaraland area were open and they were free to traverse. Communal farming activities, however increased and along with the Veterinary fence constructed to control foot and mouth diseases, these routes were soon compromised and after centuries of free movement the rules irreversibly changed.
