Unlike other cats, lions are social animals that are specially adapted for communal life in the pride:
Bringing Home the Bacon: Female lions are the pride’s hunters and use teamwork for a better chance of catching the ultimate fast-food! While smaller than male lions, lionesses are more agile and quick. Working together females are able to bring down prey much faster than themselves.
Raising Baby: Usually cubs are born around the same time in a pride. This allows the females to share care duties, including nursing other lionesses’ cubs, and provides for lots of playmates!
Lion’s Roar: Lions use their mighty roar for communication. Both male and female pride members keep track of one another by roaring. A lion’s roar is so powerful it can be heard up to 3 miles away.
