The Lion King

Close up view of one of the Lions in the Ngorongoro Crater Game Reserve, Tanzania, Africa.

( It was raining when I took this photo, and that is why the Lion is having a "bad hair day " !! )


The Lion is the largest of the 3 big cats in Africa. Prides consist of 6 to a dozen females and thir cubs, with one or more dominant males. Most of the hunting is dome by the females, but normally the males will be the first to eat after a "kill". They seize their prey by the throat and suffocating it.
