An adorable lion cub got a taste of his own medicine after his dad put a stop to his cheek with a giant roar.
In the incredible pictures of the French photography team Laurent Renaud and Dominque Haution, the cub tries to get his dad’s attention by baring his teeth.
But the pride leader soon put his foot down as his lioness looked on by scooping his son up in his mouth with a mighty roar.
Within moments, happiness was restored, and the naughty cub went off to play with his brother.
The two 55-year-old teachers witnessed the surprisingly intimate family moment at the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya.
Dominique, 55, said: “The baby cub wouldn’t stop trying to play with his father, and he was getting more and more grumpy and telling him to stop.
“I think this adult lion was teaching its cub to roar – it’s what they do in the wild.
“The cubs were only a few months old, they had yet to develop teeth, but they were adorable.”
