Artist's Description

African lion (Panthera leo krugeri)

Type: Mammal

Habitat: The preferred habitat of the African lion is open savannah and grasslands, but they can also be found amongst sand dunes in the Kalahari Desert

Age: 20 years.

Even in the wild, lions sleep 90% of the time. Unlike domestic cats, big cats roar but cannot purr. They use their roars to communicate, and given the extent of their territory in the wild, it is essential that their voice can be heard at long distances; some as far as 10 km away.

The male lion weighs 200kg on average. The mane protects his throat from attack and makes him look a bigger and fiercer opponent. The female weighs an average of 150kg. Despite their weight, lions are agile athletes, with a sprint speed of 60m/h (same as a racehorse) and a long jump of 10m, the length of about a row of six bicycles. These skills are vital when hunting.
