Digital Calendar photo description 

Family Fun in the Sun

 

Early morning in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, Mpumalanga, a family of several Lionesses and three cubs settled down in a comfortable position in a dry river bed. While the Lionesses tried to rest, the cubs had other ideas and proceeded to run around and climb all over the Lionesses.

 

Lion  -  Panthera leo

Call of the African Wild, King of African Carnivores. Lionesses are low but large and powerful, weighing around 125 kg.

 

While prey is plentiful, Lions spend 20 hours out of 24 conserving energy, becoming active in late afternoon;  hunt most actively early and late at night and for a couple hours after daybreak. Lions can become active at any time, day or night, hungry or gorged, so that when easy opportunities to catch prey present themselves, they react immediately and take advantage. Lions kill and often eat all the other carnivores, including Leopards and Cheetahs, but rarely Hyenas.

 

Lion cubs tend to be woolly with greyish, spotted coats when born, changing to an adult coat by three months of age.
