Lions - beautiful, majestic kings of the beasts. Everyone knows that lions do not live alone and in flocks - families. Predatory cats are in a constant struggle for territory, females protect their young from emotional males that may come accidentally, kids cubs.
The following is a selection of photos from the family with serious passions. Photographers who are constantly watching the lions living in captivity and under the open African skies, it is sometimes possible to shoot amazing footage.

On the baby rushed roaring lion and quickly responded by hitting a paw of a lion in the face. As the photographer: "If the lion was not there, the father probably would have brought down the baby down."

, however, grace did not last long.
And these pictures were taken by an amateur photographer Jennifer Lockridge at the beginning of last year at the National Zoo of Washington, DC. Photographer witnessed another family drama of the life of animals kings. In one cage of the zoo in Washington kept the whole pride of lions - two lionesses, head of the family - Luke and seven cubs.
5-month-old girl named Lusaka not a joke played out and bit the tail of his dad - the lion Luke.
Prior to this bite Luke ignored her small daughter-shkodnitsu, but after it - ran after her, like a cat a mouse.
Before he had time to catch up with it, baby fell on her back, humbly showing daddy abdomen. However, it was a game, and nothing terrible would have happened, as recognized photographer - father and daughter were just playing.
But the whole prevented the mother, in front of which Luke immediately obeyed.
A small Lusaka was already running in their children's affairs ...
Heritage photos you away; much more serious clashes in the lion family. This amazing and emotional scene managed to shoot the photographer Malcolm Bowling in one of the South African National Parks.
This dramatic clash, more like a gender battle took place in the Kruger National Park.
Two lionesses attacked from two sides of the obviously shaken lion ...
One of the lionesses had just become a mother and hid cubs in the den for a while until gone hunting with his companion ... When she returned to her seat, she found near the lair of the male, so the lioness and went on the offensive is likely to feel threatened offspring ...

But the clash can occur not only because of the cubs. The scene captures the photographer Lee White in the savannah of Botswana, most associated with the "conjugal fidelity" when it's over you can apply this concept to the lions.
The Lions not Monogamous. As a rule, a few male friends. But here, this lioness was terribly jealous and was clearly against the fact that its faithful during mating season, the females responded to the call not because of their pride.
She attacked her male ...
... and somehow accidentally as she got strung his tongue on his claw, he pulled him and grinned straight into the lion's face.
"Usually females with such jealousy guard their children from male-strangers But it wants to keep the family together, -. Photographer says -. I'd hate to be in his shoes."
Looking at these two pictures it seems that the family disassembly also in full swing, and grew into a serious "lapoprikladstvo", but in reality it is not so ...
These lions violently express their positive emotions, enjoying the long-awaited freedom, after they were released into the wild.
This lion family which rescued from Bolivian circus for the first time came out of his hiding place in a wildlife reserve, "The Wild Animal Sanctuary".
And in this picture there is no passion, there all the decorum and dignified - the father lion stands with his tiny kitten on a rock in the Serengeti National Park. Why not a frame from "The Lion King"?
