Cub : No Mom! No! Stop! You don't know what you're doing!

Mom Lion says nothing yet still grapples the cub

Cub : MOM!! Don't!!

*Pbhhhhht*

And thus, once again, another mom embarrasses their child in public.....  



^ ^;;;

I love this shot, since it brings back so many memories, lol!

I know! :) Who can resist soft, chubby cubby tummies? Those paws are pretty yummy, too. Just flip 'em onto their back and - "Om nom nom nom!" It seems like a universal mammalian trait. So cute. www.flickr.com/photos/12677368…

The expression on the cub's face is just too cute, I can't make out if he's in panic or attack mode though.

... Haha sometimes they DO kill their own cubs.

And more often than that, male lions will seek out the cubs of those that aren't their children, and will kill them. :)

Cute photo. c:
