Lions are carnivores and live in prides with 5 to 40 lions. Most lions join a pride but their are some solitary lions, The lions strike rate is about 1 out of 12 but hunting as a group
almost doubles their strike rate.
They live in the savanna and grass lands, They are stealth hunters they have a short burst of speed they can reach about 40 mph for about 10 seconds, Lions live for about 10 to 15 years in the wild but in captivity they can live for more than 18 years.
Lions are apex predators they often hunt but sometimes they scavenge and steal kills from hyenas cheetahs and leopards. Female Lions hunt year round and have 1 to 4 cubs at once, when they go to hunt they leave their cubs in daycare,
some female lions stay from the hunt to take care of the cubs. Lions mate during the year no specific time, They have canines 2 to 4 inches long and 2 inch claws and very strong back legs to aggressively hunt down prey.
