Tender Love
Mothers of similarly aged lion cubs form a “crèche” and remain together for 1–2 years. Crèche-mates often nurse each other’s cubs, though they give priority to their own offspring followed by the offspring of their closest relatives. Mothers of singleton cubs produce the same amount of milk as mothers of large litters, and single-cub mothers are the least discriminating in their nursing.

تجتمع الأمهات التي تبلغ أشبالها أعماراً متقاربة وتبقى معاً لفترة سنة أو سنتين. تهتمّ اللبوات بأشبال الأمّهات الأخريات، لكنها تولي الأهميّة الأكبر لأشبالها وأشبال أقرب أقربائها. تنتج أمّ الشبل الواحد الكميّة نفسها من الحليب التي تنتجها أمّ الأشبال المتُعدّّدة، لكنّها لا تميّز بين إرضاع ولدها الوحيد والأشبال الأخرى لا بل تُعدُّ الأقلّ تمييزاً على الإطلاق.
