About the Photograph

Cubs learn specific behaviors from the same-sex parent. Although male lions seldom take part in actively nurturing or raising their cubs, they do lead by example. Male cubs pay close attention to how his sire acts and you’ll often see them spending time alone together as the cub learns how to be a male lion and future king of his own pride.

In the Photographer’s Own Words

“In Botswana's Okavango Delta on an island called Duba, a territorial lion spends time with the cubs he sired. The young male cub took every opportunity to imitate his father.”

LOCATION: Okavango Delta, Botswana
