The Lion is the so-called, “King of the Jungle.” It struts around majestically as if it owns the land. The Lion can be seen walking around stalking prey, or laying in the sun for a sunbath. For generations, the Lion has captivated our imaginations. For example, movies such as Lion King have become massive entertainment hits and turned into Broadway shows. Moreover, Katy Perry, the famous American pop singer has a song where she says, “I am a Lion, and your going to hear me roar.” Indeed, the Lion has captured the imagination of the public. But what do we really know about the Lions?
Lions are members of the Felidae, or feline Family. There are 36 species of wild cat. They are the only cats in the Felidae Family where there is noticeable difference between males and females. Male Lions have a long tufted tail, and a mane of darker colored hair around their necks, while females lack any tufted hair on their tail or necks, and only have short, light colored fur all around. And these animals are big. For example, Lions can grow to 48 inches in height and weigh between 300 to 500 pounds!
Even more fascinating than their look and size is how they travel and live. Lions are found in savannahs, grasslands, dense bush, and woodlands. At one time, Lions could be found throughout the Middle East, Greece and even in Northern India. Lions live in groups called prides. Prides can contain 10 to 20 Lions, and each pride has its own territory. A territory can be as large as 100 squares miles. Lions live mainly in hotter climates on the African Continent and are extremely loyal to their pride.
In addition to being territorial and loyal, Lions are hefty eaters. Considered meat eaters, Lions will hunt and eat large mammals such as wildebeest, impalas, zebras, buffalo, and warthogs in Africa and nilgai (Aian Antelope), wild boar, and several deer species in India. Mice, lizards, tortoises, warthogs, antelopes and even crocodiles also form part of a Lion’s diet. In addition, Lions are fast. They can run up to 50 miles per hour and jump 36 feet high. This is one reason they can eat large mammals. Moreover, Lions have very sharp teeth and the fourth strongest bite amongst land animals to help trap and kill their pray. Lions are amongst the best hunters in the wild.
More interesting then their hunting mannerisms are their life spans. A Lon in captivity can live up to 25 years. However, a Lion in the wild may only live up to 10 years. This is because in captivity they have access to health care, food supplies, and a protected environment that does not exist in the wild. In the wild, wounds from fighting gradually take their tool on the animals. Thus, Lions in the wild do not live as long. Lions are a species that captivate the human imagination. Often portrayed as strong and powerful or young and cute, they are indeed a species to treasure. If you ever saw a Lion in the wild, you would be very lucky.
