Maasai Lioness

Panthera leo nubica

Description:

Lions tend to dominate smaller felines such as cheetahs and leopards where they co-occur, stealing their kills and killing their cubs and even adults when given the chance

Habitat:

savanna

Notes:

These two females were wandering around Maasai Mara together. They stopped to rest for a bit and then carried on. We stayed with them for almost half an hour. It was amazing to be so close!
