Unhappy Lions :-)

What a morning!

This picture shows Thanda’s South Pride (A mother with her daughter and her son) growling at Thanda’s dominant male Lion.

In the last few days, the big male has been spotted on various occasions trying to get close to the pride. But the adult female does not want him anwhere around her off-spring. As he is not the father of these cubs, she is extremely protective of them.

And a few more images from this great sighting …

  1. Awesome Pics. Pic #3 is my favorite of this post. In the picture of mom and the two little ones are they a girl and boy, if you know. I feel the one close to her is boy and the other a girl. On another note–Have you gotton to go on your train trip? I haven’t read anything about it. Have A Great One.
