African Lion

Stock Photography By Adam Brooker

The lion (Panthera leo) is one of the five big cats in the genus Panthera. Some males can exceed 250kg making it the second largest living cat after the tiger. Wild lions currently exist in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. They are classified as a vulnerable species on the IUCN Red List. Lions typically inhabit savannah and grassland, and prides consist of related females and their offspring and a small number of adult males. They are apex predators and hunt mainly at night, sleeping during the day.
