Lions are abundant in open plains of Africa where there is permanent water and plenty of grazing.
They are the most powerful of the African predators. With a swipe of one of his paws, Lion can break
a Wildebeest's neck and he can carry twice his weight in his powerful jaws. Lions, like any other
cat, can see at night as well as a human sees during the day. The male has a thick mane that
darkens with age. It is a mark of maturity and signals other males of their dominance. Lions
are very social animals living in prides consisting of one or two males, up to seven females
and 14 or 15 cubs of different ages.
