They may be adorable, but these lion cubs are tough, too! Just watch their silent but fierce roars. Ok guys, we're scared.

When first introduced to the rest of the pride, the cubs initially lack confidence when confronted with adult lions other than their mother.

They soon begin to immerse themselves in the pride life, however, playing amongst themselves or attempting to initiate play with the adults. Lionesses with cubs of their own are more likely to be tolerant of another lioness's cubs than lionesses without cubs.

The tolerance of the male lions toward the cubs varies – sometimes, a male will patiently let the cubs play with his tail or his mane, whereas another may snarl and bat the cubs away

Weaning occurs after six to seven months. Male lions reach maturity at about 3 years of age and, at 4–5 years of age, are capable of challenging and displacing the adult male(s) associated with another pride.
