“This 6 to 8-week-old Lion Cub picture was taken in the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during my recent safari. This cub was walking along with his family when we spotted them. The driver of my Safari vehicle drove ahead of the lions and when we parked ahead of them the little cub and his mom (in the background) sat there for a few minutes and I took this picture of him sitting in the grass. While lions can grow very big (they are one of the biggest members of the cat family) this little guy probably only weighed a few pounds, if that.”
