Even though they do not live in jungles, lions hold the title of Kings of the Jungle. Our lion quotes selection talks to the lion’s physical appearance, confident gait, bravery, and fearful roars that single them out as royalty amongst beasts. The lion is a well-muscled cat with a long body, large head, and short legs. We can find lions mainly in sub-Saharan AfricaTheir preferred habitat includes savanna, grasslands, dense scrub, and open woodlands. With great night vision, lions make excellent nocturnal predators. They are social animals that live together in groups called prides. The males are fierce protectors of the pride's territory while the females (lionesses) take charge of the cubs. In the ecosystem, lions contribute in no small measure to keep herbivore populations, especially big ones like zebras, giraffes, and buffaloes, in check. Poaching, climate change, and habitat loss pose threats to these extraordinary creatures.
