affectionate lion juveniles sub-adult behavior kruger south africa nuzzling

Lions, Kruger NP

Judging by the streaks of blood on one of their faces, these tender lions had probably just indulged in a tenderloin (rare, of course).

The juvenile on the left was nuzzling the juvenile on the right for a few touching moments - a little later, he suddenly gave the other one a big, playful bite on the throat, causing the other to yelp in surprise and retaliate. So much for the tender moment.

Every time I watch lions, I see something new.
