Twice a week, they receive knucklebones or beef femurs, and once a week they receive rabbits, which exercise the cats' teeth and jaws. They live in groups of related females, called prides, which may comprise several to as many as 40 individuals, including adults, sub-adults (between the ages of 2 and 4) and cubs, plus one or more resident males.
They create coalitions, usually with brothers and cousins, and search for a pride to take over.
Lions inhabit a wide range of habitats, from open plains to thick brush and dry thorn forest.
Except for a small population of the Indian lion subspecies that remains in the Gir Forest of northwest India, lions now live only in Africa, from the Sahara's southern fringe to northern South Africa.
Females usually give birth to one to four cubs after a gestation of about 3 1/2 months.
Cubs typically nurse for six months but start eating meat at three months.
