Lions are the only cats that live in groups, which are called prides. Prides are family units that may include up to three males, a dozen or so females, and their young. All of a pride’s lionesses are related, and female cubs typically stay with the group as they age. Young males eventually leave and establish their own prides by taking over a group headed by another male.
Only male lions boast manes, the impressive fringe of long hair that encircles their heads. Males defend the pride’s territory.
Female lions are the pride’s primary hunters. They often work together to prey upon antelopes, zebras, wildebeest, and other large animals of the open grasslands.
Lions have been celebrated throughout history for their courage and strength. Once roaming most of Africa and parts of Asia and Europe, they are now found only in parts of sub-Saharan Africa, except for one very small population of Asian lions that survives in India’s Gir Forest.(source National Geographic)
