It’s morning again and the lion cubs in the Copenhagen Zoo are wondering what they would do during this day. However, they are innovative little rascals so it didn’t take a long time until they were busy playing.

Hmmm, I’m still a bit tired ….

You were cheating! You were spying at me – that’s why you found me so easily!

No hard feelings, I hope! Let’s just play together!

Ooooops! The toy happens to be daddy’s tail! I hope he doesn’t mind my playing with it. ­čÖé

Papa lion seems to be accustomed to the kids’ playing so he remained cool as a cucumber – if we can say so about a lion. ­čÖé

  1. Dear Mervi
    It is remarkable how patient the big cats are
    with their little ones. The family with lions and
    tigers is really important.
    The sun bears do play with their fathers. Poor old Bhumipol
    had to put up with Ernst playing with him.

  2. Dear Mervi,
    the lion cubs are lovely. The house cats like to play with the mother’s tail. the lion cubs can play with the father’s tail ­čÖé

  3. Dear Mervi,

    Hugs from Copenhagen
