The Lord of the Jungle. A ferocious beast in the wild with a roar like thunder. Most lions spend close to 20 hours a day sleeping, resting, or lounging around. Ths means they only have around 4 hours to do their hunting, socializing, eating, etc. They look so peaceful when they are sleeping.
“When you lie down, you will not be afraid; When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.” ~ Proverbs 3:24
The lion (Panthera leo) is a member of the family Felidae and one of four big cats in the genus Panthera. With exceptionally large males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight,4 it is the second-heaviest living cat after the tiger. Wild lions currently exist in Sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia with a critically endangered remnant population in northwest India, having disappeared from North Africa, the Middle East, and Western Asia in historic times. Until the late Pleistocene (about 10,000 years ago), the lion was the most widespread large land mammal beside humans. They were found in most of Africa, much of Eurasia from western Europe to India and, in the Americas, from the Yukon to Peru.
