Lioness with Cubs - a Moment of Tenderness

Head rubbing - nuzzling one's forehead, face and neck against another lion - appears to be a form of greeting, as it is seen often after an animal has been apart from others, or after a fight or confrontation. Males tend to rub other males, while cubs and females rub females.
