  • Lions can reach speeds of up to 81 kph (50 mph) but only in short bursts because of a lack of stamina.

  • The roar of a lion can be heard from 8 kilometers (5.0 miles) away.

  • Most lions found in the wild live in southern and eastern parts of Africa.

  • Lions are very social compared to other cat species, often living in prides that feature females, offspring and a few adult males.

  • Male lions are easy to recognize thanks to their distinctive manes. Males with darker manes are more likely to attract female lions (lionesses).

  • Lions in the wild live for around 12 years.

  • When lions breed with tigers the resulting hybrids are known as ligers and tigons. There are also lion and leopard hybrids known as leopons and lion and jaguar hybrids known as jaglions.

  • In the wild, lions rest for around 20 hours a day.

About Akhi Soufyan

If you see goodness from me, then that goodness is from The Creator. You should be thankful to The Creator for all of that. Cause I'm not the architect of that. I'm only the...the recipient. If you see weakness or shortcoming in me it's from my own weakness or shortcoming. And I ask The Creator and the people to forgive me for that. _______________________________ Website eigenaar voor een betere wereld en doel, niet gericht op verdiensten van geld maar goede daden. In de naam van Allah, de Barmhartige. Als je goedheid van mij ziet, dan is dat de goedheid van de Schepper (God). Wees De Schepper dankbaar voor dat. Want ik ben daar niet de architect van, ik ben alleen de ontvanger.
