Lion Living & Eating Habits

Lions might come off as fierce and ferocious to the predators, but when it comes to those inside their own packs (called prides), lions are actually very social and family-oriented animals. Prides can have as many as 40 lions, and they all work together to hunt prey, raise their cubs and defend their territory.

Typically, the role of hunting falls to the lionesses. The lionesses hunts in teams of two or three to stalk and kill their prey. It typically takes lionesses several tries before they make a kill. Once they have their food, the male lions are the first to eat, followed by the lioness and the cubs get what's left.
