The regal lion is terrifying with his towering mane and tremendous roar.
However, based on the photographs below, we can clearly tell that a lioness is in command here.
At least, not in our household! A family of lions at the Washington National Zoological Park experienced some drama.
The explanation was a simple play battle between the father lion and one of his mischievous offspring.
Things got out of hand, and the mother had to step in to calm everyone down.

Jennifer Lockridge, a 42-year-old photographer, caught the amusing incidents in a series of images.

After his effort to chastise the youngster, the lioness – who, we must agree, had some attitude – had severely scolded her male.
Lockridge, who has been visiting the zoo on a regular basis, primarily to observe the lion family, was in the right location at the right moment to record this heated argument.
