Catching Up with Lion Cubs Ken and Dixie

What a difference three months makes in the life of a lion cub. Although I have seen Ken and Dixie a few times since they left the nursery back in April, today was the first time I was able to photograph them outside at Lion Camp.

Talk about growing up too fast, wow. These two have gotten so big in just a few months, I mean take a look at those paws!

Born on December 6, Ken and Dixie will be 7 months old next week. The cubs take turns enjoying the grassy slopes of Lion Camp with their parents Izu and Oshana. I love that Dylan and I have the opportunity to visit the San Diego Zoo Safari Park on a regular basis to watch them grow up and become adult lions.

Ken and Dixie are just like your average toddlers - well, except that they are lions and not humans. When it comes to taking pictures, you have a 50-50 chance of them cooperating.

Typical brother and sister, one is always making funny faces.

Uh-oh, looks like Ken and Dixie are up to something. Whispering lion cubs are never a good sign.

Yep, there he goes. So much for taking a family portrait today.

I look forward to spending some late summer nights watching these two frolic at Lion Camp during Summer Safari.
