Lion Facts

Lions are social creatures. They spend their time purring, licking other lions, and rubbing heads.

In a single meal, lions can consume up to 40 kg of meat, or roughly a quarter of their body weight.

The lion is known as the "king of the jungle," but it only lives in grasslands and plains.

A lion's roar can be heard from a distance of 5 miles (8 kilometers).

A lion can sleep for as long as 20 hours per day.

The lioness is an important member of the family and helps to feed it. She is the primary hunter in her pride.

The last Asiatic lions can be found in India's Sasan-Gir National Park, which was established primarily to safeguard the species. There are roughly 350-400 lions in the park right now.

Male lions protect the pride's territory, while female lions do the majority of the hunting. Despite this, the males are the ones who eat first.
