The lions' primary hunting hours are between midnight and sunrise. Male lions patrol the territory and provide protection for the pride, but females do 85-90% of the hunting.

The roar of an adult male can be heard up to 8 kilometres distant.

When they are two years old, female lions have reached around two-thirds of their adult size.

A young lion is called a cub, whelp, or lionet depending on the species.

In the wild, lions have been known to live for up to 16 years, with an average lifespan of 12. They can live for as long as 25 years when kept in captivity.
