Play fighting is an intriqate part of life as lion cubs. During these rough & toumble games the cubs not only learn social structure & behaviour within the pride but also very important lessons in 'tackling' & ambushing potential prey. 

These two's interaction was so amazing that I had to capture it on canvas.
