Smithsonian National Zoo lion pride is all growns up
- (Flickr/National Zoo)
Parents always lament how quickly their children grow up, which is strange because children take forever to grow up. (Some never do!) Lions, on the other hand, grow from cuddly cubs to giraffe killers in a matter of months. So if it seems like just yesterday that the National Zoo's lion litter was taking swim tests, meeting the public, and generally being an adorable handful for the zoo's lion keepers, that's because it practically was just yesterday. But now it's time for the seven male juveniles, at a year and a half old, to move out of their parents' house. Apparently they're all stepping on each other's paws.
