|Lion, Pantera leo
Masai Mara, Kenya
This male we found relaxing in the shadow together with another male, but
they was very disturbed by our presents, and soon took of.
Unmistakable. A lion weights around 180kg. They are very social,
polygamous, rarely seen alone, and lives in families or prides. They hunt
mainly during the night but more often also during the day than other cats. During the
heat of the day the sleep under trees or bushes and they have a reputation of
lazy. They rarely climb trees.
