Sitting on the grass is a pride of magnificent lions. There are five of them, King Booba, Queen Malindi, and their three cubs Bongo, Komga, and Gandor.
The lions live at Zoo d’Amnéville in their own enclosure surrounded by tall and healthy trees. They have lots of space to run around and play. Currently, Booba is resting, and the cubs are playing nearby.
While the cubs are playing, one irritates Booba, and he decides to teach them about personal space. Booba gets up and starts to discipline his cubs through play fighting.
Of course, it is simply how the lions learn without hurting each other. When they fight, they are gentle. It may seem scary, but Booba is making sure that they remember their lessons.
Through play fighting, the cubs learn and create a bond that will last for the years to come. Malindi, their mother, takes the time to play with them as well.
After a year, the cubs grow to be nearly as big as their father. At 17 months, their manes are starting to grow. It will be a while before they can have the same majestic mane as their father.
The cubs are still very playful. One of them can’t resist biting on the tail of Malindi, who was waving it in front of her cub’s mouth.
