A Mating Pair of Lions

Thur, Dec 13, 2018

Guess who walked through camp?  A pair of lions that were mating!!

We were fortunate to witness the mating since the gestation period is 105-110 days and they only go into heat every 18 months or so.  Mating lasts 3-4 days but they do it every 8 – 30 minutes over those few days.

Here’s the male and, based on the scratches on his face, he’s been in a few fights.

She’s a beauty and we should all have teeth is such fine shape.

The act takes a mere 10-15 seconds and then he roars at climax time 🙂

And then they get up and move to a new spot and do it again.
