A lion is considered to be the king of the jungle. He dominates many of the other animals around. His large size allow him to become a deadly predator. Most lionesses give birth to at least one young by the time she has reached four years old. Lionesses may give birth to as many as four cubs at one time after her gestation period of a little over 100 days.
The lioness will take care of the cubs as well as find food. Once the cub can see, they are still trying to find their way around. Usually, the lioness must do everything for her cubs during the first few weeks. However, the cubs will start moving around after a few days.
