With her newborns dependent on her for weeks after birth, the protective mother frequently relocates her young to prevent them from being detected by predators. On return to her pride, the family of lionesses unites to raise the cubs and help them immerse in pride life. The love between a lioness and her cubs is tenderly expressed by affectionate displays of caressing and social licking.
Other releases in the Mother's Love series include Asian Elephant, Giraffe, Bear and Orangutan.
