Did You Know?

  • Lions are a magnificent big cat found living in the grasslands and open woodlands of sub-saharan Africa.
  • They are a very social animal, which is unusual for cats - they live in a group called a pride, with around 30 lions.
  • Females are the main hunters in the pride as they are faster and more agile than the large males.
  • Lions are also the laziest of the big cats, sleeping for up to 20 hours a day!

Fun Fact: The beautiful thick mane you see on a male lion also serves a purpose - to protect their necks during fights with other males.
