From a year of age onward, cubs are considered adolescents. They have more independence than a younger cub, however they are still not productive members of the pride yet.
An adolescent will no longer follow its mother if the mother is chased off, traded, or transferred, unlike a cub.
Adolescents are still growing and learning what it means to be an adult, and as such they desire full bellies and lots of attention to become the best they can be.
Becoming an adult
An adolescent becomes an adult at the age of 2 years, or 24 real life days. Females will remain in the pride; however if there is not enough room in the pride, they will be chased off. If there is an available Subordinate Male slot, a male will automatically claim it at 2 years of age, if there is no spots available, then they will be chased off.
