Lioness And 8 Cubs Pose For Pawsomest Family Portrait

Lioness And 8 Cubs Pose For Pawsomest Family Portrait

Photographer Barbara Fleming captured a once-in-a-lifetime shot of a lion family in Tanzania. 8 lovely cubs obediently lined up next to a lioness and all looked directly to the camera as if instructed.

The photo was taken 2 years ago in the Serengeti Loliondo Conservation. The cubs belong to 3 different lionesses – they’re one big happy cat family! The lionesses didn’t seem to be bothered about the photoshoot, too, they were proud to show off their little ones.

It’s especially nice to see such a picture when you consider that the population of these majestic animals is rapidly decreasing. The number of the big catsplummeted from 450,000 in the early 1940s to only 20,000 now.

Sleeping Clouded Leopard Cub Is The Best Thing You'll See All Day

Sleeping Clouded Leopard Cub Is The Best Thing You'll See All Day

The Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa, FL just released this insanely adorable video of twin clouded leopard cubs, born on February 29th.  These two gorgeous girls, Aiya and Shigu, are making their first explorations of the outside world, a crucial stage in the development of clouded leopards, who are among the smallest of the big cats.

Clouded leopards are listed as a "vulnerable" species, due to human encroachment--in the form of poaching and deforestation--on their native Southeast Asian forest habitats, which is why breeding them in captivity is considered an essential step in their long-term preservation.

The two petite beauties at the Lowry Zoo are expected to weigh between 30 and 60 pounds when fully grown and measure about five feet from tip to tail.  They're shy around humans (and rightfully so), but check out the video below to catch a rare glimpse of a napping cub.  And feel free to "Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww!" to your heart's content!
