Caption: African lion (Panthera leo) juveniles play-fighting. The African lion is a big cat and predatory carnivore that inhabits the savannah and scrubland of sub-Saharan Africa. Lion 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. As they grow, they engage in play-fighting that helps develop skills they will need for hunting. Photographed in South Africa, in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
