The Lion is one of the largest cats in the world with males being taller and heavier than females and displaying a mane of long hair around their faces.
The color of the lion’s mane can range from blonde, red, brown, and black. Its color depends on the lion’s health, testosterone levels, and vigor. The darker the mane, the more the lion will scare off potential rivals and attract potential mates.
African lions are diurnal and nocturnal; however, they are extremely lazy and can sleep for up to 22 hours per day.
