This is a story of a man walking in the jungle. A roaring lion ran towards him, and the man ran as fast as he could to escape from it. He noticed a well in front of him and he jumped inside hoping to escape from the lion.
Only home cats are afraid of water!
All cats are perfect jumpers. Tigers are strong and stretchy. Even if you think you are far enough from a tiger who’s ready to attack, this predator has a different opinion.
Tiger’s roar can scare everyone!
Just like your cat at home! Yeah… tigers are just like home cats! They are just a bit bigger. This tiger enjoys spare time on a tree branch.
So Scary and So Loving at the Same Time
This tiger is one of the most dangerous animals on earth when it comes to speed and strength! However, tigers are very caring parents!
Bengal tigers are rare. Maybe this is the reason they are so beautiful and gracious! Still dangerous, though!
Not Afraid of Snow
Tigers enjoy running, and it does not matter where they do it, be in snow or water. They like snow! Seriously!
Mom’s Back Is the Best Landing Place
Indeed, why not learn this way? Mom’s back is soft and safe! Both of them want to land there? Well, this may be a problem!
How Are You Doing There?
It’s hard to believe these three little creatures will turn into perfect predators! Well, right now they are harmless.
Lions are the second largest big cat species in the world (behind tigers).
The average male lion weighs around 180 kg (400 lb) while the average female lion weighs around 130 kg (290 lb).
The heaviest lion on record weighed an amazing 375 kg (826 lb).
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.
Lionesses are better hunters than males and do most of the hunting for a pride.
In the wild, lions rest for around 20 hours a day.
