Let’s get Roaring and learn lots of baby lion facts. These cats are born helpless and blind away from their pride, as their mothers typically leave to give birth in a safe place. The little ones suck milk from the mother until they are 7 or 8 months old. Lions sleep at day and hunt at night. A litter of lions is usually only 2 cubs but can be more. Baby lions in the wild feed on milk and meat, eat lizards, birds, insects. The young male lions seek for a family which they will lead. A male lion eats first, even though the females actually catch the prey. Male and female lions live in a large group named a pride with their cubs.
