No brothers or sisters of same age means no competition for food, attention etc maybe a good thing but also means no play and mock fights which trains them for adult fights and hunting. Very interesting to see how she would be as an adult.
After managing to find the Tailless Female of the Tsalala Pride relaxing together with her cub, I found it impossible to not share some of the footage with you all. It shows the attention a cub seeks, and the demands placed on you, when you are a mother of a single cub.
For those ‘lion addicts’ and followers of the continual trials and tribulations of the Tsalala pride…this little snippet is for you!
For a recap of the life-to-date of this little cub, together with pictures of her in the den, click here.

Hey. Of course I remember that. Sadly the orphaned sister just disappeared many moons ago. She is no longer. But the good news is that the Sparta Pride has 7 cubs currently and so are growing all the time. We follow them with interest. The four Majingilane are still very dominant in this area!
