Not only milk!
Our little Lion cubs have graduated to meat dishes 🙂
Their mum – Thanda North Pride’s oldest Lioness – had caught a Warthog for dinner. As the sun set she moved the kill into a thicket not far from one of Thanda’s main roads. And as the light fated she fetched her little ones for dinner.
The image above shows one of the youngsters with a red nose from enjoying one of its first meat meals.
The collage below shows a small Lions’ feeding frenzy, a watchful mum and another on of the cubs showing some interest in my clicking camera.
What a sighting!
And this last collage shows the young Lions two weeks ago venturing very close to the game viewer before their mum led them away into the bush.
