But mum, you said it was easy! Lion cubs try to copy their mother's leap across a stream… and end up getting a soaking 

You can lead a lion cub to water, and even make it drink ... just don't try to make it jump across, as this patient lioness learned the hard way.

The mother lion tried to make her five youngsters cross a river where a freshly-killed topi was waiting to be eaten in Kenya's Masai Mara last month.

Wildlife photographer and Exodus guide Paul Goldstein arrived just as the scaredy cats were preparing to cross.

 'Finally after yet another airborne example the two youngest leapt over, getting pretty damp in the process. The mothers then went back for the other three older cubs.
