Amazing family of lions
He is referred to as the “King of Animals” for good reason.
The majestic lion’s towering mane and powerful roar are nothing short of terrifying.
But it’s obvious from the images below that a lioness is in charge over here.
Certainly not in our home! The Washington National Zoological Park witnessed some drama with a family of lions.
The simple playfight between the father lion and one of his wayward cubs provided the explanation.
The mother had to intervene to restore order after things became out of control.
However, this father’s behavior was unprecedented for lion males who are in front of lionesses.
An assortment of pictures taken by 42-year-old amateur photographer Jennifer Lockridge depict the funny events.
The large lion attempted to teach the small cub a lesson when it simply grabbed his father’s tail and bit it, but he ultimately became the one who learned from his partner.
The lioness, who, it must be said, had a temper, had harshly reprimanded her male after he attempted to punish the youngster.
Lockridge, who frequently visits the zoo to study the lion family in particular, was in the ideal location at the ideal time to capture this contentious disagreement on camera.
The lion enclosure had been relatively quiet when the young cunning Lusaka bit the father’s Luke tail.
