i dont know if you guys saw the article that was posted here over the summer.

basicly a lioness adopted a prey animal (gazelle -like) there is a special about these two on animal planet.

i am watching it and its really interesting.

one of the things that was said here, was that she had cubs of her own and lost them and was adopting this animal to sort of replace her cubs, but the lioness is far too young to have had cubs (only 3 years old)

its also weird be the lioness definately shows signs of mothering and careing as she would with a cub. but sometimes, there is something ...err... unkind about how she looks at this prey animal infant.
