Mother Love for a Lion Cub
Before settling down for a well-earned nap, a cub needs a quick caress and lick from mom. I took this adorable picture in Botswana, located in southern Africa.
The lion (Panthera leo) is in the genus Panthera and the family Felidae. Some males exceed 550 pounds, making it the second-largest cat after the tiger.
