18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Baby Teeth

This was by far the best sighting of that Tanzanian safari. We spotted a pride of lions sleeping on top of the kopjes in the Serengeti, and as we got closer to the rocks, we saw that there were quite a few cubs in that pride. The best moment was when three of the young cubs started chasing, playing and biting their mom's tail as if they were kittens that were playing with yarn. I can't remember the last time that I laughed as hard as I did watching these guys.
