The Breeding Facts of Lions

Lionesses sneak away from their pride after a four-month gestation period. They usually give brith to a litter of two to six cubs. 

The weight of a new born cub is approx 3 pounds and they have a yellowish-brown coat and distinct spots or stripes. Cubs are kept away from the rest of the pride until they gain enough strength. It may take four to six weeks.
