Where they live

Many Lions live in the African Savanna. They are also in Indian forests.

Lions eat animals like zebra, gnu, and wild boar. They also sometimes eat larger water buffalo, smaller birds and some fishes.

Lions are like common cats. Like cats, they sleep during the day. When you see them at the zoo, they don't move much do they!

Lions, the king of all animals!
Lions are called "The king of all animals". This means that they are the strongest of all animals. They have no natural enemies. There are some animals, like the Elephants and Water Buffaloes that the Lions never fight again with. However, Elephants and Water Buffaloes are plant-eaters. Lions aren't afraid of being eaten by them.

Who are their real natural enemies?
The number of Lions – strongest of all animals- is becoming smaller. People are killing the Lions, and their living space is disappearing. Some people kill Lions to protect livestock, or to take their skin and meat, or just to have fun hunting them. The real natural enemy of Lions is we, the people.
