Lion Reproduction


Lions become sexually mature around the age of 2 to 3 years. They can copulate up to 40 times in a 24 hours period. Lions give birth to 1-6 cubs after a gestation period of about 15 weeks. Cubs are born blind. They begin hunting at 11 months but will remain with their mother for at least 2 years.
