Lion Facts

  • Lions are smaller than tigers. Yes, it is true. Lions are the second largest big cat after the tiger.
  • Lion cubs weigh just 1.5 kg when they are born and they have spots on their skins. The spots blot out when they grow older.
  • A male lion’s roar can be heard from 5- 8 km away. Males have a deeper roar than the lionesses.
  • As a result of all the fights they get into, a male lion usually lives around 10 years in the wild, while in captivity they live to about 20 years.
  • Male lions don’t hunt often because their mane causes them to overheat
  • A single swipe of a lions paw can break a zebras spine

There are eight types of lions species found on earth

  • Barbary lion
  • Asiatic lion
  • West African lion
  • Masai lion
  • Congo lion
  • Southwest African lion
  • Transvaal lion
  • Ethiopian lion

Except for the Asiatic lions, all are inhabitants of the African continent.

  • A good gauge of a male lion’s age is the darkness of his mane. The darker the mane, the older the lion. Male lions are the only big cat species with manes
  • The most brutal aspect of a Lion’s life, when taking over new territory and pride, some male lions will form a “coalition,” or a group of 3 or 4 males. They will fight the resident male lion, often to the death, and kill all his cubs.
  • Another surprising fact is lions don’t live in the jungle. Lions mostly live on grasslands and savannahs. Sometimes they inhabit forests, shrubland, and desert. But never the jungle.
  • Lions are extinct in 26 countries they previously roamed – This list includes Congo, Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Gabon, Nigeria Gambia, Iraq, etc.
  • Lions are the only cats to live in social groups called “pride.” all other members of the feline family are solitary. Why do lions live in Pride?
  • A lion’s Nightvision is 6x better than that of a humans

Lions sleep for around 16 to 20 hours a day.

All the females are usually related as they remain with the pride they were born into. Males on the other hand tend to go off on their own and when they are old enough, attempt to create their own pride. 8 Most Unique Lions in the world

Mating Season of Lion

Lion Facts and Mating Season - Everything You need to know.

Female and male lions usually associate only for a few days when mating, do their thing, and then go their separate ways. No strings attached!

While on the subject of mating, which typically lasts three to six days, they usually do not hunt, but only drink water.

Females in the pride all tend to mate roughly at the same time and this means they also give birth generally at about the same time. Why are lions so strong?

When the Lionesses are in heat, they have a lot of sex with the male lion at once in a single day. Lions mate 20 to 40 times and the Lioness is the one who demands to mate. So if the male is tired and can’t keep up with her, She bites his private.
