A young lion cub (Panthera leo) of Tsalala pride.He was very active on this rainy gray day .He is the only cub of this pride but was fathered by the Majigilane coalition who control this area of the sabi sands so he is safe and likely to make it in the tough wild!He was very proud of the stick he found,Londolozi,South Africa
