A lions family is called a pride. A pride can have 4 to 40 lions. A pride consists of related females and their cubs with a small amount of adult males. The male lions are the protectors of the pride and the females hunt for the food.
Lions eat a variety of food that the females hunt. Their diet includes wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, hyena, cheetah, and impala. When food is hard to find, lions resort to scavenging looking for vultures to steal food from. When it’s time to eat the dominant males eat first, then the females, and then the cubs.

If a new dominant male takes over the pride, he will kill the cubs to be able to mate with a female and have his own.
A lion wont have a full roar until they have reached full adulthood.
A lions roar can be heard 5 miles away.

One of the largest in Africa is the Kruger National Park where the animal are safe from being hunted and people can go visit them in their natural habitat.
