Funny Face Expression of a Lion Proudly Mating With His Lioness

It doesn’t occur often to see wild animals mating with each other, but Photographer Vclav Ilha, was able to capture a moment like that in the Massai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.

The picture shows a lion about to mate with a lioness, while in a highly aroused stated, standing close to her, roaring and baring all his teeth as he prepares to mount the lioness.

“As soon as the female is ready to mate, she would raise her tail and provoke him by rubbing him or crawling at his feet.

The male follows her impatiently, for the female leaves behind a strong odor.” That was just the beginning of a session that could last up to five days; lions mate up to 200 times, and despite that, the act lasts only a few seconds, they will continue to mate after 20 minutes.
