    Reported by:

    We were lucky to find new born lion cubs in the plains of Masai Mara. The mother is extremely protective of the cub and was often seen hiding them behind the bush and away from predators. In this instance, as the cub unknowingly walked very close to the side of a cliff, the mother lioness quickly tried to grab it from its head to protect it from falling over. It looks dangerous but it is an endearing way for the lioness to pick up the cub and place it back to safety.
