Lion

Panthera leo

After the tiger, the largest of all big cats and one of the five big cat species that can roar. Originally the lion also comes from a much colder climate zone, the traces of the lion can be found mainly in southern Europe. Lions are very sociable animals and recognize each other by their smell.

The males have an imposing mane. They usually hunt in the morning and evening hours. Although the hunt is exclusively a matter of the females, the males eat first of the prey. With their “cat’s eyes”, lions can also see well at night. It was found that lions can jump 3.5 m high and 20 m wide.
