A quick trip to the San Diego Wild Animal Park today was more fun than a barrel of monkeys – it was two litters of lion cubs all romping around and wrestling with each other.

These are two of the seven cubs at the Wild Animal Park. The seven cubs were born in November 2007 a few days apart. Their mothers, Mina and Oshana are sisters.

What a fantastic opportunity to shoot so many cubs all at once, and watching them play is definitely a rare treat. I’ll definitely be making a lot of trips there this spring.
