Before the lions were destroyed during the hunt. Now tourists are only allowed to photograph them in national parks. Breed well in captivity. Those handsome lions, which you meet in zoos were born there. This is a large, powerful build an animal called the king of beasts, though he gives way to the elephant and the rhinoceros. Live in savannas with their open landscape and an abundance of ungulates, the availability of water. Lions are found not only in the singles and couples, and large groups called prides, which includes 1-2 adult males, several adult lionesses and young animals. The leader and father of most children is the strongest and the big male. Lions hunt together, fed the weak and sick relatives. The family issue is usually 2-3 spotted calf. In three months the cubs begin to eat meat, although still drinking breast milk. Older they become in 3-4 years.
