African Lion

Panthera leo

Description:

I love the vibrations of a lion's roar spiraling to the heavens. Felids enthrall me, and the king of the jungle is no different. Rather than the "man eating" reputation commonly associated with these beautiful animals, lions rarely attack humans. When they do, it's either because of the fault of the human or the lion is too injured to catch his usual prey (which consists of wildebeest, impalas, zebras, springbok, buffalo, and warthogs). Please don't fear these amazing creatures... after all, we're the ones decimating their population and habitat!
