Leading the cubs to the river’s edge, the mother lion patiently taught them how to jump to the other side and adapt to the environment.
A mother and her cubs gather on the edge of a small river in Kenya’s Masai Mara reserve.
Here, the mother lion teaches her cubs to cross the river by modeling, gaining momentum, and then jumping to the other shore.
To encourage her cubs, the mother lioness tries almost everything.
Looking at her cubs, the mother lion encouraged them to cross the river, where prey was waiting.
However, the children showed fear and did not dare to jump over.
Their mother led them to another stream, resting and drinking water to prepare for the next exercise.
Finally, under the guidance of their mother, the two lions decided to plunge through the water.
But then they quickly fell into the water, marking their first failures in life.
