The lion is one of the four big cats. The
lion is only
smaller than the tiger. Lions can weigh up to 550 pounds. Lions
live for 10-14 years in the wild, and up to 20 in captivity. Fighting with
rivals shortens the life of the male lion.
Lions are the only cats where the females look distinctly different than the
males. The lioness is more aggressive. Lions have small hearts, so they attack
their prey when they are near to them. Lions are also color blind.
Lions rest a lot, up to 20 hours per day. They spend 2 hours a day
walking, and 50 minutes eating.
