Did You Know? Litters of up to six baby lions (but usually one to four) are born at any time of year after a gestation of 110 days. The mother initially conceals her cubs in dense cover or in a cave, away from the pride, before introducing them to the pride when they're from one to two months old. The baby lions in this picture are probably six to eight weeks old.
