Lions live in cool climates as well as in places with hot heat: like the woodlands, grassy plains, and in areas with thorny scrub tree.
Lions travel mostly at night in packs and at a speed of 6 seconds for every 100 yards. They travel in groups called prides with as many as 40 lions while hunting for prey.
Generally, lionesses have 1-4 cubs per litter. Female lions can have 4-6 cubs at the same time or have 1-4 cubs at the same time.
The white lion is an exceptional species that originally lived in the Timbavati region of South Africa. However, the species has been hunted and captured; hence, majority of surviving white lions are today living in captivity in different parts of the world, especially US. The white lions scientific name is Panthero Leo Krugeri.
According to scientists, an average lion should live for 16 years. Lions are well adapted for their survival although today, it is being threatened by human encroachment on its habitat. Lions in captivity typically live longer than those in the wild, about 20 years, as compared to 12 years in the wild.
Adult lions have not more than 30, extremely strong teeth. Lions are members of the cat family and are, in fact, the only social cats in the family, not to mention the most fierce and strongest.
This book is about lions. It tells facts about lions. If you want to find more out about lions then this is the book to read. The book has photo graphs. I based this book on my best friend Caleesto who loves lions so much that she acts like one.
