After Narika’s spearing we had a little hope that her 3 young cubs might live, but they were less than a month old and would only be able to survive if one of the other females in the pride – either Selenkay or Elikan, who both also had young cubs adopted them. The cubs were probably about this size – this is one of another lioness Nimaoi’s offspring.
However, we have seen Selenkay and Elikan, and tracks of what appears to be their cubs only. Narika’s cubs were so small, they would not be able to last very long on their own. Sadly it seems they may have met a similar fate to their beautiful mother Narika.
