This feisty lioness was caught giving her boyfriend a good slapping.
The quarrelling lion couple proves that it’s not always easy to love the one you’re with.
Captured on the luscious green savanna of Tanzania in the Ndutu area – the fighting pair were also spotted baring their teeth and giving each other dirty looks.
Manager, Giuseppe D’amico, snapped the domestic dispute while on the prowl for photo opportunities.
Giuseppe, 59, said: “I was there because of the many photographic opportunities – in this case a pair of very quarrelsome mating lions.
“These photos were taken in Tanzania, in the Ndutu area, at the southern border of the Serengeti.
“The pictures show the frequent quarrels between the two lions in love.”
