Lioness With Cub Papo Figure - 50043 £6.49
Although it looks like a gorgeous fluffy toy, the lion cub will soon go on to become "the King of the Beasts". The lion cubs are born blind with dark spots all over their bodies, a very useful form of camouflage. They can nevertheless count on protection from their mother, who looks after them. The lion cubs are weaned at the age of six months. They then learn to hunt, in the company of the lionesses. Driven away by their father at the age of two years old, the young lions leave their pride to seek out their own territory.
