Lion cubs eating a zebra just after sunrise on the Serengeti in Tanzania, Africa. The pride of 9 lions (2 males, 3 females, and 4 cubs) had killed 2 zebras. The 2 male lions ate one and the females and cubs ate the other. The cubs didn't actually eat much, being quite young and still suckling. The pride had no challenges from other predators, so they had an undisturbed feast.
