Thank you!!! They are so cute!!!! I am agree “The english language just does not have enough power and emotion sometimes…”, but not english only, any language ….I hope they will survive and will become big lions and lionesses !!!

He he he, what fun! Loved this blog. The photo of the cub with the branch brought on extra giggles. I would have loved to hear those cub noises, snarls, growls and purrs, instead of the music. Still fun to watch though. Thanks for the giggles.

Such a great way to start my day though the one cub getting picked on may not feel the same as I do. Thank you for sharing that video with us.

Adam, You have outdone yourself. Terrific pics and great commentary. These little ones are just too cute for words. I absolutely loved the “mission accomplished” pic. Thank you for always bringing us such great windows into the bush.

Holy cuteness, Batman! Great footage and stills, Adam! I especially love the mid-air knock down shot. I was lucky enough to witness 2 young cubs at play on a couple of occasions during my magical stay with you guys. One of my favorite pictures I took was of one of the cubs with a huge ball of ele dung in her mouth. She was carrying it around and swatting it like a toy! Making do with what was available. Crazy adorable. Do the adults ever play with the young ones or each other? Or is it all business once they reach maturity?
