Facts about Lions

Lion Facts


Have you ever seen the movie The Lion King? It is an animated movie about lions.


Joey would like to tell you a little about the Lions! Did you know that female lions do almost all of the hunting? Yep, they take care of their pride. A Pride is a group of lions. A pride can consist of four adult male lions, several adult female lions, and their cubs. The lionesses hunt for food, bringing it back to their pride, and the male lions eat first. Sometimes, the male lion lets the cubs join in and eat with them. The female lions eat last.
