COMMON NAME
Lion
SCIENTIFIC NAME
Panthera lio
Lions are the most social of the cat family. They live in prides consisting of one or two males, up to seven females and 14 or 15 cubs of different ages. Prides occupy territories that they defend against nomadic lions and other prides; this is done by the dominant male or males, by means of patrolling and scent marking.

The Lion Picture on the left was taken on the road between Letaba and Olifants Camps in the Kruger National Park.
