Any animal carrying its young in its mouth is special and these ones are part of a big healthy Laikipia pride. These lions reside near Ol Pejeta dam which has a well-stocked striped larder. It is always an anxious wait before the cubs can be fully integrated into an extended pride, but this is a settled family and with two huge males in charge (Sior being the alpha) their future appears bright and certainly should last longer than an Australian prime minister’s.
Thanks Anna, a real pick me up on a Friday morning.
