8 types of Lions


Here’s everything you need to know about Lions

Lions are the largest cat in the world, and they can be found in Africa’s southern and eastern regions. Lions are most commonly seen in “pride” groups, which consist of one to two males and many females. They are more likely to hunt successfully and will protect their cubs. Sometimes lions can act as scavengers, attacking hyenas to steal their prey. The teth is also known as carnassials. It works like a pair or scissors.
