African Wildlife: Pictures of Lions: Sleepy Baby

Picture of a lion cub yawning
Sleepy Baby, South Africa, 2008

We came upon this pride in the early evening. They were just waking up. This baby cub is enjoying a yawn and a stretch. A few minutes later they were up and traveling. The next morning we found them again on a buffalo kill. This time they were all full and fat. They would eat until they were full, rest, then get up and eat some more. This went on for a couple days.
