Did you know that African lions are the only cats that live in groups, called prides. All of the females you see in a pride are related. Young male cubs like the one at the back of this photo leave their pride when they are about 2-3 years old, while females stay. Lion prides usually feature one or two males, a dozen or more female lionesses and a few cubs, but in rare cases can number 25 or 30 members! That’s a lot of mouths to feed!
Big cats like this young African lion have fascinated me for over 25 years since my first jaguar story for @natgeo magazine. It is our responsibility to give the next generation of big cats a fighting chance in the wild. National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative is working towards the conservation of African lions, leopards and cheetahs across Africa. Increasing anti-poaching efforts, installing protective bomas to stop lion-cattle conflict and monitoring big cats numbers with camera traps. Visit https://www.nationalgeographic.org/projects/big-cats-initiative/ to find out how you can help save big cats today, and remember by saving apex predators like lions and tigers we keep ecosystems balanced and healthy!
What's your favorite thing about your pet(s) mine has to be BB's eyes, sometimes he just looks so intelligent you can see his brain working, it's absolutely fascinating to watch his eyes move, even the slightest movement feels like he's changing his expression entirely sometimes.
