Lion Cubs Stretch, Play and Nurse

Happy wild Wednesday! A few weeks ago I promised the big cat lovers some more cute lion cub photos and here they are. The baby lions are from two litters and their moms are sisters. I believe the first litter was born two months earlier than the second and those two cubs are much bigger than their four cousins. Can you pick out which lion cubs are from which litter?

They love to play on their giant log structures in their habitat. This brave cub is about to swat his mom's head.

And when they take a play break they sometimes rub their faces or chew on the ends of the logs.

 They run around and enjoy the grassy areas too.

And once in a great while, they stop and nurse from their mom. Here one cub is nursing and the others are resting. They grow up fast so if you live near the National Zoo it's worth going to see them while they're still small.

May God bless this precious lion family, their keepers and may He bless you too!
