Facts

  • Lions are the second largest big cat species in the world.
  • Male lions are easy to recognize thanks to their distinctive manes. Males with darker manes are more likely to attract female lions.
  • Lionesses are better hunters than males and do most of the hunting for the pride.
  • Lions spend much of their time resting; they are inactive for about 20 hours per day.
  • Some lions are "nomads" that range widely and move around sporadically, either in pairs or alone.
  • Both males and females defend the pride against intruders, but the male lion is better-suited for this purpose due to its stockier, more powerful build. Some individuals consistently lead the defense against intruders, while others lag behind.
  • Adult lions have no natural predators, evidence suggests most die violently from attacks by humans or other lions.
