Rag ear and baby




It is amazing to see how tender and affectionate these rough, tough male lions can be with their offspring. They let them climb all over them, bite their ears etc.
When the baby lion gets too boisterous the male gets up and walks away.
If they take over a pride with young ones from other males they tend to kill the babies. They do this so that the mother can mate with them sooner, and their genes get to be carried forward.

I hear that it sends the females right back into estrus. Nature's way.

It's wonderful to see them with their kids. Hmmm...NOT that it would put us in mind of any OTHER rough tough male lions out there...

Lions are so cute (when they're not eating you)...
