    At some point I forgot this was about the lion king. I would just like to throw in some savanna info. During a drought in Africa lands can look barren, but as we saw it was raining in the rawr scene. There was also fire. These are both very important. 1 there are plants in Africa that need fire to activate, 2 once a rain happens in Africa what seems like a waist land Will be a vast oasis of plants within hours. You can literally fall asleep in a waist land and wake in a garden from rains. The rains also dictate migratory patterns in Africa. As water becomes low animals travel vast distances in search of it. Once it rains these animals migrate to both breeding grounds and freshly grown foods and water the savanna produces. So even though great points about how lions hunting for lions was the main topic of your video, I feel like so much info was missed about the savanna in general. This includes rains, fires, and migratory nature of animals in the area. Hope this helps with future vids.

    So you can believe literal ghosts but magic roars that can heal nature with a new king is too far?

    Simba's return coincides with the end of the dry season and the return of the wet season - you see the effects of the drought on the land, and the water rising as the rains finally begin to fall. The drought had nothing to do with Scar, it's just what naturally happens. We can presume there has been a year or even several passed in between Simba's return and the final scene, plenty of time for the land to grow again and the herds to recover.

    The reason that the decline of the grass eaters created a wasteland is because since there was no grass being eaten, there was no weeds being eaten either. There are so many different plants that grow. Some of them are more harmful for the environment than good and when they are not being controlled, they can get out of hand and make the ground no suitable for plants. When the ground was not suitable for plants, no plants grew.

    You're omiting the fact that the wasteland caught on fire and rained afterwards.
    Ash is a great fertilizer. Ever notice that the grass grows back even better after a controlled burn?

    I've been to Yellowstone aaaages ago when I was around 5. Don't remember it much, but my little story is basically something we found out when we were getting ready to leave. The camp site we were staying in happened to be a popular spot for bears to pass through. We didn't see any, but someone (forget who) told my parents that a mother bear and her cub had been in the camp site only hours before we arrived to set up! Kind of a scary thought, but also pretty cool!

    Was gonna make a really pedantic comment but 1) everyone else already made it and 2) the story of Yellowstone's wolves never gets old for me and is perfect in explaining the restoration of the Pridelands.
    And I really wanna visit Yellowstone... but only just as the supervolcano erupts.
    ... call it the last item on my bucket list.

  • Warmonger 24
    Warmonger 24 29 days ago

    As well as providing a real world example, the decay of the plains in LK is also due to an old concept that you see in older literature: divine right. In older times, one of the ways monarchs would legitimize themselves is using the idea that deities would place them in power and if a ruler that either wasn't born into power or didn't follow the correct religion, etc, then the land, whom the ruler was responsible for, would then fall into various forms of decay as a reflection of the corruption or evil of the improper ruler.
    Scar, a fratricidal, incestuous, usurper(Hamlet's uncle) is obviously not the proper ruler for the pride lands, and Simba(Hamlet), both by blood, not having murdered his brother, and not slept with his sister in law, is the rightful ruler. Thus, when Simba takes back the throne, the land then is restored.

    I run a tpur bus through Yellowstone about 5 times a year. The clinic near Old Faithful has free condoms (Im assuming for the employee housing across the street which attracts a lot of College kids during the summer). Since I've been out of college for awhile now and like free stuff, I pick up my free condoms from Yellowstone National Park.
    It's kinda my favorite antidote of my life.
    But Yellowstone is amazing. Definitely worth a trip. Grand Teton is equally as impressive, if not better.

    The answer to your query about why grass died rather then gew. It's quite simple. Africa's weather + the lack of animals to make natural mulch

  • cameron cormac

    How the wasteland would happen is if the lions killed most or all of the herbivores, then there wouldn't be enough animals to control the amount of vegetation in the area, leading to water sources drying up due to increased pressure on the water table, leading to the plants dying off increasing moribund material (dead plant matter), creating an increase in fuel sources for wildfires and with one strike of lightning you would have massive fires. This in turn would lead to a localized increase in CO2 and dust particles entering the atmosphere creating an environment for clouds to form and produce rainfall. SO Simba's "magic roar" doesn't cause the rain its more to symbolize how Scar is now gone and how everything would eventually return to normal. just to expand on your theory.😁. I'm a South African Biologist and I completely love the story about the Yellowstone wolves as it follows another biological theory, the theory of keystone species (which is where if one species is removed the entire ecosystem falls apart, much like if you remove a keystone from an arch, the arch is completely destroyed).

  • Sarena Huisman

    I think that it was a waste land because there wasn’t enough non carnivorous fertilizer to feed the grass with.

    You are both right and wrong. The original wolves in yellowstone were idaho timber wolves. Roughly the size of a medium sized dog (75-95lbs). The Gray wolf introduced into yellowstone is a Canadian gray wolf which can weigh in at 150-200lbs. These wolves have helped the park but they make life very challenging for us locals. They have a love of killing, they will kill 1 elk for food and 3 for sport. And that's if they go after elk instead of livestock. The livestock are penned and can't escape should a wolf jump their fence (an easy meal). Back to the wolves size, three of them can take down the biggest bull in any elk herd. Get 6 together and most buffalo don't stand a chance. I've seen them and they are massive for a Wolf. You only gave the good side to them in your video, most people dont see the downside that those of us that live by the park have to live with.
    On a seperate note, I mostly find Yellowstone to be an over crowded tourist trap. It's cool without a doubt, but because of all the people that go it's lost its nature feel. If I were you I would go to island park, the salmon river, the beaverheads, the lemhi's, the tetons, and no return wilderness. I prefure those over Yellowstone. Especially the salmon river.

    If predators kill all herbivores, then the herbivores don’t eat the plants, if the herbivores don’t eat the plants, the plants overpopulate, then you have a problem, or if you remove the carnivores, then again chaos but no plants.

    Great video! One thing I want to explain to easy your concerns at the beginning about the land changing immediately after Simba roars. This is a transition scene to show time has passed. They also demonstrate this when they show Simba and Nala's baby. Female lions are pregnant for around 105 days, meaning it has to have been at least that long since Simba and Nala met as adults. Simba roars to show he is ruler of that land; something real lions do. It's not magical.
