Lions, known as the "king of the jungle" are strong and powerful animals that roam across the plains and grasslands in Africa. Seeing these cats up close in person is quite the experience. Their powerful roars can be heard from 5 miles away. Adult male lions have a mane, while females do not. They are very social creatures that live in groups, or "prides", of about 15 lions. The role of the male is to protect the pride, while the female hunts for the food.
