Female Lion Cub Separated From Her Pride Is Taken In By An Unlikely New Family
In the wild, it's every animal for themselves. And while we love to romanticize the tales that come from habitats like the jungle and the desert (hello, The Lion King!), we shouldn't forget that these places aren't just exciting for our furry friends—they're extremely dangerous.
For instance, young animals in the wild immediately learn that they'll have to stay strong—and stick with their families—if they want to survive. Looking cute might be a perk in the human world, but that definitely won't ensure your survival in the animal kingdom.
So when one adorable lion cub grew ill, it was no surprise that her pride left her to fend for herself. A sickly cub would only slow down the pride, and they couldn't risk that. How would the cub survive without her family?
