Mother Love for a Lion Cub
I took this adorable picture in Botswana, located in southern Africa.
Before settling down for a well-earned nap, a cub needs a quick caress and lick from mom.
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.
