Playful Cubs

Late afternoon in the Mashatu Game Reserve, Botswana, a Lioness and her three cubs were enjoying the late afternoon rays of the settling sun. These two boisterous cubs dashed around tumbling over each other.

Lion – Panthera leo

Call of the African Wild, King of African Carnivores. Lionesses are low slung but large and powerful, weighing around 125 kg. When prey is plentiful, Lions spend 20 hours out of 24 conserving energy, becoming active in late afternoon; hunt most actively early and late at night and for a couple of hours after daybreak. Lions can become active at any time, day or night, hungry or gorged, so that when easy opportunities to catch prey present themselves, they react immediately and take advantage. Lions kill and often eat all other carnivores, including Leopards and Cheetahs, but rarely Hyenas. Lion cubs tend to be woolly with greyish, spotted coats when born, changing to an adult coat by three months of age.
