Favorite thing: Female lions will mostly stay with the pride all their life, and a male will usually leave after a year. If another male comes into the pride, he will fight the leading male lion for head place of the pride. Then he will kill all the puppies, so that his puppies are the only ones in the pride. Females give birth to 1-5 puppies, after a period of three months. The female lion on the pictures has 4 puppies. The small lions face a high mortality rate from starvation or attacks by other large predators.
