COMMON NAME
Lion
SCIENTIFIC NAME
Panthera lio
The lioness normally leaves the pride to give birth to her litter, in a sheltered spot where she leaves them, while hunting.
At this stage the lion cubs are very vulnerable, sometimes being taken away by scavengers, like hyenas, while their mother is away.
The picture of the two lion cubs was taken at the Kalahari Gemsbok Park
just outside Nossob Camp
