5746, STANDING LION CUB 14''L are anatomically scaled to create the best reproduction of the life size stuffed animal and the most realistic stuffed animal in the industry.
When they are first born, cubs are very small. They have their eyes closed and don’t open them until they are two to three weeks old. Even then, they can’t see properly for another week or so, so need lots of care and attention from Mum.
As they are unable to defend themselves, cubs are vulnerable to attack from large birds and snakes and even male lions.
Lionesses usually have around three cubs, but can have as many as six, so they are kept very busy making sure they are all safe.
A lioness will keep her cubs hidden from other lions for around six weeks until they are old enough to follow the pride. Any younger and they wouldn’t be able to keep up and could get lost.
If there are older cubs already in the pride, the mother must wait until her young are around three months old before introducing them.
Older cubs often bully the smaller cubs and steal their milk, so they need to be big enough to stand up for themselves.
