Lion Cub

This photo of a lion cub was taken by Scott Elberger on September 7, 2012. It looks as though the photo has been taken during the cubs play time as it definitely has that playful look on its face. Young lions often use play as a way to improve their hunting skills and often their games are done in such a way that their hunting skills are ever improving. By the looks of things this lion also has a belly full of food and could be contributing to the lions intention to start trouble or play.
