It seems like in every culture we focus on the adults but forget about the “little” people. Well “little” people I heard your cry and I am making this blog about YOU. Of course when I said YOU I meant the lion cubs.
As it becomes time to bring the cubs to the world, a lioness disappears from her pride for about two months and remains hidden until it is time for her cubs to be introduced to the rest of the pride.
At about 10 to 15 days cubs begin to walk. A lion cub opens its’ eyes at about day 3. Though teeth are still both growing and strengthening, a lion cub begins eating meat at about 3 months.
Out of the litter, lioness cubs will usually stay among the pride but male cubs will most likely be forced out or leave on free will from the pride at the age of two or three.
Little ones are always left out but not this time. This time It’s All About the Cubs …
Yes, we ALL know that the Lion has been named the “King of the Jungle” but why has the lion been chosen out of all the animals in the whole world? Is it because of their strength? Or maybe their roars. It could even possibly be because of their beauty.
The roar and appearance have helped but those are not the only things that have set the lion apart. A lion’s strength and strength has been ranked among the top for years.
Lions have also been seen as a symbol of strength to people all around the world.
Being as long as 9 feet and weighing in over four hundred pounds; give one reason why you wouldn’t earn the title “King of the Jungle”.
As I have grown, I have noticed that lions and people actually have a lot of things in common; one being a house. Lions have a home called a “lion’s den”.
Within this den many of things happen: the lion sleeps there, (in some instances) eats there and also mate there.
In a lion’s home (lion den), the “King of the Jungle” (male lion) sleeps for about twenty hours (on average). Contrary to the male lion, the female lion (lioness) averages a lot less sleep; due to the fact that she spends most of her day hunting.
Though a lion might eat on the scene, sometimes they actually bring the food back to there homes to feed their pride or lion cubs.
Like the homes of a human being’s, lion’s mate in the lion’s den; that is where the “magic” happens.
After a long day of hunting or protecting their pride, there is nothing like HOME SWEET HOME …
