Lion dads are responsible for the protection and training of their cubs. Fatherhood often includes capturing prey that are too large for their offspring and protecting them from other lions. Come on Dad, you said you were gonna smouch them!
I'm in love with how peaceful lions seem to be, with so much power, and control of their land. I admire their confidence, and strength. These animals are the majestic creatures I've ever come in contact with, and I love them.
