HOW I CAPTURED BLACK AND WHITE BABY LION PICTURES
It is challenging to photography a baby lion, especially when the mother is around. It was early morning in western India when I set out to take lion photos. One of the locals mentioned he had seen two lionesses with six cubs the day before. When my tracker stopped the truck, I grabbed my camera in anticipation to take images. When I saw the lioness, I got off the truck and walked towards her. She was alone, but I knew the cubs and the other lioness were nearby.
I wasn’t sure if I should go back to the truck or stay there to take cute lion pictures. I decided to continue trying to capture the lion cub photos even though they had their backs turned to me. When I laid down on the ground to get a better perspective, one of the little ones turned around and ran towards me. I got so lucky with that fine art photography image. If I had decided to quit just a few minutes earlier, my luck would have quit with me.
I’m so lucky to capture these lion cub photos and videos to share with you in our photo art gallery. Our exclusive fine art prints are more vivid and filled with energy that you will not find in baby lion pictures.
BABY LION CHARACTERISTICS
Lions are the second-largest member of the feline family today. However, even the most powerful of these animals started life as cute babies who were at the complete mercy of the world around them. The world is rarely forgiving, especially when you’re small, unassuming, and defenceless.
These mothers have a lot to contend with in their parenting. Most lionesses will have their first cubs when they are about 4 years old. They will typically leave the protection of their family to give birth alone and will hide their young for about 6 weeks. Being without the safety of pride is a huge risk to a new young mother. This is a risk she is willing to take to ensure the safety of her baby lion cubs. Her children, weighing in at only 2 to 4 pounds at birth, are completely dependent on their mother’s care.
HOW CLIMATE CHANGE AFFECTS BABY LIONS
The little cats in our cute baby lion pictures are facing major risks due to climate change. One major risk is drought which leads to malnourished prey as a result. Which is already infested with ticks or illness, as a result when they eat them they also get infected. The ticks, it turns out, carry a blood parasite that renders them less able to cope with the canine distemper virus. The combination of the two diseases killed many more than either disease commonly would act on its own.
The number of clashes between people and also African lions could increase as temperatures rise, a new study suggests. The research shows that global warming could lead to changes in the geographical range of a disease carried by the tsetse fly as a result, also be deadly to cattle.
Although the overall range of the disease is likely to increase, it could vanish from parts of eastern and southeastern Africa that support large numbers of them. In turn, this could lead to cattle ranchers moving their animals into these areas bringing people and them into close proximity. Which may put herders in danger and trigger further declines in the lion population. With our pictures of baby lion cubs, we aim to create awareness for these amazing animals. Ejaz Khan fine art photography showcases these adorable baby lions and all wildlife to bring them greater attention.
BABY LION FACTS – AFRICA AND WESTERN INDIA
A baby lion gestates for approximately 110 days and is born in a litter of between one and six babies. Baby lion cubs are born blind and also helpless, away from their pride.
Shortly before the mother gives birth, she leaves the lion pride and finds a safe place to give birth. The mother and her baby lion stay in isolation for four to eight weeks or so. You can see the mother and her cub in one of our pictures of baby lions.
Young baby lion cubs are vulnerable to various predators, including leopards, jackals, pythons, martial eagles, and also hyenas (as you may have seen in Disney’s classic movie The Lion King). The mother acts as a protector by finding the best hiding places to keep the cubs safe. One of my lion images, Invisible Connection, shows the mom looking over her cub. It’s a fine art photography image that many lion lovers appreciate.
LION PICTURE GALLERY
Which pictures of baby lions is your favorite?
African lions live in groups of between one and three males, along with several females and also their cubs. Male lions in India live apart from females and their cubs.
One of the lion cub facts is that even though they are known as “King of the Jungle,” they actually live in grasslands and plains. They don’t live in the jungle! On my expedition to capture lion images, I learned that the mother lion makes it her top priority to protect the lion cubs from both male and female pride members when she introduces them to her pride. While other females can be aggressive toward the cubs, males are more likely to be a threat. Take a look at our pictures of baby lion cubs and you’ll see how gentle they can be. Each image in our baby animal wall art collection greatly supports wildlife awareness and conservation foundations.
DANGERS FOR BABY LIONS
The greatest danger to a baby lion is a shift in male power which can be deadly for lion cubs returning to the pride. When power shifts, the cubs will be killed as male lions prefer to have their own children in their families. Females will often nurse each others’ cubs and also defend them against threats. Eventually, males will leave the family, while most of the females will stay with the family group.
A baby lion is dependent until they reach one year of age. Due to threats from starvation, predators, and alpha males, up to 80 percent of baby lions die within the first two years. Our lion cub pictures capture their preciousness.
Baby lions are very small during the first couple of weeks of their life. They’re born blind and aren’t able to open their eyes for 2 to 3 weeks. After they open their eyes, they don’t have a proper vision for about another week, making them very vulnerable. In fact, they are so defenceless to the outside world that they can even become prey to large birds and snakes.
Lion mothers devote their lives for the first few weeks of their cubs’ lives to make sure that they are safe. They have to do this to ensure that as many of them survive as possible. Even after returning with her cubs to the pride, lionesses can still face danger from male lions. Mother Nature may be hard on a lion cub early in life, but those that survive grow to be powerful carnivores. They owe it to their protective mothers that against all odds, raise them to be independent cats that will do the same for their cubs.
