Big Cat Sex is passionate stuff !
For lions as it is for leopards, jaguars etc : They go on for days doing nothing but having sex ......   and can have a frequency every 15 minutes. Pretty impressive in my opinion ! 

All pictures shot Maasai Mara, Kenya, nov/des 2017, Aug 2018, Sept 2018 and Oct 2018.
Hope you like them !!

Thanks to Big John Siololo and Oltepesi Camp.

... and in the end they make cute little cubs ! 
However, if a new male has fought his way to take over the pride he will often kill all the cubs in the pride to have his own offspring.
