Intense Photos Show ZooMiami Lion Battle

A battle for supremacy between two lion brothers at ZooMiami was captured in several intense images Thursday.

The two adult 8-year-old lions, Jabare and Kwame, were fighting to determine who was king of the jungle after two females were introduced into their exhibit, ZooMiami's Ron Magill said.

After several confrontations, Jabare established himself as the dominant male. Things calmed down and the brothers accepted each other's presence, making ZooMiami one of just a handful of zoos in the country with male and female lions in the same exhibit.
