The Big Picture: reader travel photos, April 26, 2014

Show thumbnails

This image was taken on a recent safari to the Ngorongono Crater in Northern Tanzania, East Africa. The Ngorongono Crater was simply amazing. We descended slowly down the crater rim onto the crater floor which was lush and green after recent rains. We came across a pair of mating lions. When mating the pair separate from the pride and leave cubs with other lionesses. Mating can last several days and the pair often forgoing eating so tempers can become a little frayed. This male lion was not impressed when one of his cubs decided to join them and he responded accordingly. Don't mess with Dad when love is in the air! No blood was shed. The cub simply rolled over onto his back and Dad went back to the job on hand! A truly amazing moment to witness discipline - lion style!
