The king of the jungle has 30 strong teeth which he uses to capture and eat his prey. Due to his size, the lion needs to eat between 8 to 9 Kg's per day and usually feast on buffalo, zebra, giraffes and wildebeest.
The female lion can have up to four cubs in any one litter, but she usually has two or three. Her cubs are weaned by the time they are eight months old. As the film The Lion King demonstrates, one male lion will become the head of the pride and will usually reside as such for approximately two years. After this time a new male lion will become the head of that pride.
