Lioness With Cub
Photo and caption by Bruce Fryxell
A litter of three playful lion cubs were providing wonderful entertainment by playing with each other near Lake Ndutu in Tanzania. After some time, this cub left the other two to play with its mother. She patiently allowed it to climb all over her head and chew on her ear. When the cub crawled under her chin, she took the opportunity to rest her head on its back.
