Caption: Lioness and cub. Female African lion (Panthera leo) and her cub. Females produce offspring roughly every 2 years. They give birth to between 1 and 6 cubs after a gestation period of 3 and a half months. Cubs are kept in hiding for their first 8 weeks. They are weaned between 7 and 10 months, but remain dependent on the pride's adults until around 16 months old. Females remain with their mother's pride but males leave the pride around the age of two and a half years. Lions inhabit the savannah and scrubland of sub-Saharan Africa. Photographed at the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, East Africa.
