Children enjoy torturing their fathers, but one must be extremely careful if he is also a dangerous beast.
These playful cubs tried to test their father’s patience by playing with his tail while he slept in the sun.
The powerful predator let out a muffled growl, trying to warn the young.
On the other hand, the cheeky little devils didn’t seem to give up and kept coming back to play with his tail.
In the end, he gave up and went somewhere in search of solitude.
66-year-old German photographer Ingo Gerlach captured a funny moment in the Mara National Reserve in Kenya.
“After a while we saw a male lion. He was the only sleeping member of the lion family. He dozed on the edge of the thicket, not wanting to take care of his family.
“It worked for about five seconds, but then the cubs wanted to play with the very fluffy tail end again.”
