Because all your children want to do is have fun, you need to have a lot of patience with them as a parent. But it turns out that being calm is not an option when you are a sleeping lion!

In a series of some extremely hilarious photos, a wildlife photographer captured on camera a bunch of cheeky lion cubs that really wanted to know how patient their dad can be. While the majestic male was having a very good sleep, his tiny cubs wanted to have fun, and they thought his tail may be the perfect thing to play with.

Ingo Gerlach, a German photographer, was at the right position at the right time to record the scene as it happened in Kenya’s Masai Mara Reserve. The 66-year-old photographer stated to MailOnline: “There were around eight cubs; they were about six weeks old. The man had no inclination to look after the family and nodded off at the edge of a bush.

The king’s patience was immediately pushed to the limits, and he let his cubs know he’s definitely not in the mood. So, he thought that his roar would be enough to keep them at distance. But the say, ‘like father, like son,’ has never been more accurate and the fearless cubs kept annoying their father, until he decided to find another place to get some rest.

Even though the lion father was quite irate, his menacing roar was unable to deter the cubs.

“The cheeky cubs discovered the bushy tail of their dad,” Gerlach said!

They played with it for a short while before their father threatened them with licked teeth. This only worked for a little period of time, though, because the kids persisted in annoying their father. Before the lion walked to a neighboring thicket, the argument lasted for thirty minutes.
