Cubs are one of the most important parts of the game Lioden. Cubs are born after three real life days, after a lion and lioness have bred. A lioness cannot hunt while pregnant but can while nursing.

Cub GeneticsEdit

A cub will inherit certain colors and markings from each parent, as well as some of their stats at the time they bred. They will only have 1 skill point though, as skill is acquired and not inherited.

Most cub coats have a spotted pattern on their coat, but this will wear off as they grow into adolescents unless they have a specific marking that they inherited from a parent in which they keep some spots or stripes.

Extra Cub Stages Edit

At the Oasis you can purchase the Extra Cub Stages- Newborn which will show from age 0 to 2 months and Young Cub which will show from age 3 to 5 months, after which they will show the usual cub stage. You only need to purchase the Extra Cub Stages once- after purchase, it will apply to every cub that is on your account. However, the Extra Cub Stages don't follow the cub. If you sell it to an account that doesn't have Extra Cub Stages, it will revert to the normal cub image.

Life

At this age cubs are dependent on their mother and will follow her when she is traded, transferred or chased off.

Until they are 6 months old, cubs will not require feeding and daily interaction, since they are still nursing from their mother. Once they are 6 months old, their mood and hunger will go down the same as a grown lioness's would. Even though you don't have to, it's still reccomended to interact with cubs daily, as they may gain a skill point if you play or tussle with them.

- cub remains a cub until they reach the age of one year, in which they become an adolescent.

If you like the cub, but are disappointed in by its gender, you can always use a cub sex changer from the Oasis to switch it to the opposite gender.

Chasing off a Cub

It is possible, if you are not satisfied with a cub, to chase it out of the pride so it is not a drain on resources. In doing so only the cub will leave, although you might have a testy lioness on your paws.

Mutations

Mutations were added in an update, along with fertility. If a lioness breeds, the cubs may be mutated, The lower the fertility of the lioness, the higher the chance of a mutation. Some are apparent at birth, some during adolescence and others can only be seen when they are adults. Mutations can also affect the lifespan or abilities of a lion. There are 41 mutations at the moment.
