This mother lion (Panthera leo) stands guard over her cubs and others from her pride. Lion prides usually consist of up to 20 individuals, including a dominant male and several females. Female lions generally have cubs every 2 years, in litters of up to four babies. At birth, lion cubs weigh less than a pound (2kg). Their eyes are closed for the first two weeks, and cubs first begin to eat meat around week six. Female lions do most of the hunting for the pride and care for the cubs, not unlike many human households.
