It was fascinating to see how lionesses teach young cubs to hunt!
The mothers led the cubs to an area where several warthog families were grazing. They then separated some young warthog from the family groups and proceeded to lead their cubs in a hunting lesson. In this image a lioness can be clearly seen supervising two cubs (one from last Spring’s breed and a larger one from the previous year) the capture of a young warthog. The tenacity exhibited by the smaller cub is amazing. He was definitely not going to let his elder brother get away with his catch!!!
This image was captured in the Masai Mara conservancy, south west Kenya, East Africa.
