No one will forget the heart-rending scenes when the circus in Peru tore Kiara’s cubs from her, how she stared into the distance looking for them for days and the joy when ADI reunited the family. That was almost nine years ago. The family is as close as ever, cubs Mahla and Scarc have grown big and powerful and now it’s them that watch over Mom. This little sequence was taken a few days ago at the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary, South Africa with Mahla and Scarc either side of their proud mother, enjoying the African sunshine. If you are wondering where Aunt Amazonas is, she’s directly below them under the platform sleeping in the shade. Lions are social animals. Lions need each other.
