Image by @beverlyjoubert. Irresistible - a flicking, tasseled tail is not something that a playful, young cub can ignore. How long he gets to play will depend on how much patience his mother has and how deep his claws go! He is one of the youngest members of the famed Tsaro Pride and has a lot of growing to do before he can head off into the Okavango on his own. With an estimated 3000 adult male lions remaining, a lot rests on little cubs like him. Mortality in lion cubs is high and with males being kicked out of their prides when they near maturity, it is essential for them that there is space to go and continue that journey to adulthood. The problem is that protected, wild areas across Africa are becoming smaller and corridors for young, nomadic lions to venture between existing lion territories, much more difficult to navigate. But the Okavango has been granted many levels of protection and there is a great deal of work happening to secure the source in Angola. With continued conservation of wild lands, this little cub might one day be the leader of his own pride. #littlebigcats#okavangolions#tsaropride
