COMMON NAME
Lion
SCIENTIFIC NAME
Panthera lio


This Lion Picture was taken near Satara in  the Kruger National Park
The female normally does all the hunting, usually at night, late afternoon or early morning. At a kill, the adults will eat first, with the male sometimes claiming it for himself, and, if anything left, the cubs will then take their turn. In times of scarcity this means very little food available for the cubs, and death by starvation.
