LEAN ON ME
I had the priveledge of watching this mother and cub pair for several days, and each time they were so close to each other. The mother was constantly teaching her student. Whether the lesson was about fishing, eating the grasses or how to use the tourists as human shields to protect themselves from the aggressive males in the area, the lesson's learned would become innate behavior and necessary for his survival once he is weaned and on his own.
