This lion family paw-trait has captured the moment six adorable cubs cuddled up to their mum.

Bobby-Jo Vial, 35, from Dubbo, Australia, captured a wonderful moment between a family of lions while visiting Duma Safaris.

The images show the adult lioness named, Stomp, because she is missing most of her tail, cuddling six cubs on a large rock.

Bobby-Jo was over the moon to catch this beautiful moment on camera in Greater Kruger, South Africa.

He said: “This has to be one of the sweetest interactions I have ever photographed between cubs and lioness.

“I felt like I had captured the perfect lion family portrait. You can really see how much love those little cubs have for the lioness.

“It was a wonderful moment between the only social big cats.”
