How to define "young"?

    This is specifically pertaining to lions. If we see a lion that appears to be mostly full-grown, but still has some spots indicating it's a juvenile, do you want us to mark "young present"?

    A lot of lions seem to retain faint spots until they're quite close to adulthood. If the lion appears mostly full-grown, then consider it an adult. With "young present" we're mostly looking for cubs (<1 year old for lions).
