Many will agree with me that they have never seen lions mate even on video.
That’s why I chose to share with such people this beautiful footage of lions mating and giving birth.
It’s not a behaviour often captured on film, but the Earth Touch crew recently got the chance to film African lions mating in the wild!
When it comes lion mating rituals, it’s all about speed and stamina (and plenty of aggression).
And monogamy is out of the window – females will mate with more than one male and since there’s no specific breeding period, lions mate several times a year – and a mating marathon can involve twenty to forty romps a day (the amorous pair often doesn’t even stop to eat!)
The next time he calls you a lioness in bed, he might actually be saying you will never enough of it, hahaha
