A Beautiful Lion Cub

Usually there are two to five cubs in a litter. A lioness has cubs approximately every two years. When the time of birth nears the mother chooses a suitable site for her lair at a well-hidden location, safe from other predators and near water. The cubs weigh about five pounds and are blind at birth. That makes them completely dependent on their mothers. Cubs have a spotted skin which sometimes persist on the legs and belly until they are fully grown. Cubs are often killed when another male becomes dominant.
