They hunt together in groups (called a pride), with many lions working cooperatively to bring down one large animal.
The male lions then take what they wish from the hunt. Any cubs get the leftovers. Lions often feed on zebras, wildebeest and can amazingly take down large animals such as giraffes, hippos and even young elephants. At the other extreme, they will also eat mammals the size of mice.
Did you know: Although the male lion is quite a bit larger than the female lion, the female lion does most of the hunting.
Did you know: The lion is the largest African carnivore.
