Probably for the day and back to the nonsense the next day! LOL.
Poor cub has no siblings to play with. And it is too dangerous to put it with the other lions which would really harm it. Zoo will put him and mother with the rest of the lions when he reaches about 3 years old depending on size and whether he can take care of himself when attacked.
Lions do fight in enclosures unfortunately. Their huge paws and claws can really do lots of harm.
Will be sharing more images on this event. I have to pick and choose which to share.
