Playing is incredibly important in cubs’ development, allowing them to practice the skills required to become competent adult hunters. The cubs watch the females hunt and will attempt to chase anything that moves, from ants to birds and even baboons. They quickly learn which of the local wildlife is worth stalking, so by the time they reach adulthood will rarely waste time attempting to hunt animals that are too large, too dangerous, or too quick to escape. Sometimes the females will bring small prey back for the cubs to practice on, re-releasing it to allow them to hone their hunting skills.
