These two adorable lion cubs prepared for life without their mother by playfully fighting each other.
Wildlife photographer, Aditya ‘Dicky’ Singh captured the incredible images Masai Mara Wildlife Refuge in Kenya.
In the 52-year-old’s heartwarming photo sequence, the cubs can be seen leaping onto one another before one punches his sibling with a cheeky paw.
Aditya, a photography tour guide, said: “One evening we found the cubs suckling right in the open.
“After they had their fill they started playing with each other, under the watchful eyes of their mother.
“We could not believe it then. Two days later we again found them playing early in the morning.
“Play is an important part of learning for the cubs.
“On both these occasions we could not believe what we were witnessing.”
