Dad lion tries to punish cub for biting his tail and only to get reprimand by its mum

For good cause, he is known as the “King of Animals.”

The regal lion is nothing short of scary, with his towering mane and tremendous roar.

However, based on the photographs below, we can clearly tell that a lioness is in command here.

At least, not in our household! A family of lions at the Washington National Zoological Park experienced some drama.

The explanation was a simple play battle between the father lion and one of his mischievous offspring.

Things got out of hand, and the mother had to step in to calm everyone down.

Only, we’ve never seen a lion male toe the line in front of a lioness like this father did.

Jennifer Lockridge, a 42-year-old amateur photographer, caught the amusing incidents in a series of images.

When the little cub just grabbed his father’s tail and bit it, the enormous lion tried to teach it a lesson, but he ended up being the one who was educated by his soulmate.

The lioness – who, we must admit, had a bit of a temper – had severely chastised her male following his effort to punish the pup.

Lockridge, who has been visiting the zoo on a regular basis, primarily to observe the lion family, was in the right position at the right moment to record this heated argument taking a photo.
