Fact of the Day: Lioness Labor

Male lions are important in a lion pride as they are supposed to fight off any threat to the group of lions. However it is the female lions, that do the vast majority of hunting so the rest of the lions can have food.

The males sits and preens himself so he looks handsome when his female returns :)

It is the motherly instinct - food for the young.
Male lions have been known to kill the young if sired
by another lion.
It is the law of "The Pride" or as some say - "The Law of the Jungle" after all the lion is called the king of the Jungle - so strange that they are found mainly on the savannahs which are NOT Tarzan like jungles.

That's an interesting fact indeed. And I wrote a little about the lion in my recent post, ha!

Hello Adam!:)I would have thought it was the stronger male who would do the hunting, although I think the majority of females do the shopping!:))

Good thing the male lions can't hold cans of beer and don't like to watch football. The ladies would have to do EVERYthing.

Awesome!

An interesting fact: the females do most of the hunting but the males eat first, and they allow cubs to eat with them or the offspring might starve because the females don't like to share.
