In the Jungle, the mighty jungle…

Imi plac foarte, foarte mult leii. Sunt majestuosi, sunt minunati. Singurele feline care-mi plac. As vrea sa fiu ca ei. Nu, nu a blood thirsty animal, cel putin nu mereu. As vrea sa am siguranta lor si incapatanarea lor si mandria lor.

Imi doresc sa vad o data un leu in mediul lui natural. Sa-i aud ragetul. Cred ca este cel mai frumos lucru din lume. Te face sa te simti mic si neinsemnat.

Facts:

There are 4 members of the cat family that can roar – lions, leopards, tigers and jaguars.

The roar of a lion can be heard as far away as 8km.

A lion’s eyesight is 5 times better than a human’s eyesight and it can hear prey from more than 1.5km away.

Lions can sleep or rest for 20 hours in a single day.

A charging lion can reach speeds of up to 64 km per hour.

Although often called ‘The King Of The Jungle’, the lions habitat does not include jungles. They prefer open woodlands and thick scrub.

Lions are the only members of the cat family that live in social groups called ‘prides’.

All members of the pride carry a common smell that is passed on to each individual by rubbing their heads together.

Lion prides are very co-operative with one another. For example healthier members often obtain food for old, sick or injured members of the pride.

On average male lions hunt for only 12% of their food. Females provide 75% and the rest is taken from other predators or scavenged.

Of all the cat species, the male lion is the only one to have a mane.

At birth lion cubs are covered with fur and are spotted.

All mothers share the responsibility in caring for cubs.

Lions Rule!!
