Favorite thing: The male lion is recognized by his mane, and can weigh up to 250 kg, the females weigh up to 150 kg. In the wild lions live for around 10-14 years, while in captivity they can live over 20 years. The lions are hunting in teams to surround and kill. Lion kills with a neck bite to break the neck or by covering the throat, preventing breathing. The lion lacks the stamina for a sustained chase, and is a bad hunter on long distance.
