It's hard out there for young cubs. Male lions are unpredictable, rough, and sometimes aggressive, so for the first six to eight weeks, the lioness looks after her new cubs all alone. She often chooses to give birth to her vulnerable and blind youngsters under the shelter of a rock, or in thick undergrowth. After about two months, the cubs are ready to meet the rest of the pride. Lionesses share parental duties, and all lactating females in the group will assist with feeding until the infants are weaned. If a mother is killed, her sisters will often take over and raise her orphaned young.
A small moment captured when the cub was arguing with her mum while sitting over her.
