Asiatic lion

Nearly all wild lions live in Africa, but one small population of Asiatic lions’ lives in India’s Gir Forest. Asiatic lions and African lions are sub-species of the same species.

After the hunt, the group often fights over the kill, with cubs at the bottom of the pecking order. Young lions do not help the pride hunt until they are roughly a year old. Lions will hunt alone if they have the opportunity and they also steal kill from hyenas or wild dogs because it is easy for the lions to steal the prey.

Asiatic lions once scavenged from the Middle East to India. Now, only a fraction of these animals survive and are able to live in the wild. The Gir Forest’s dry woods were once a hunting ground. Today they are a reserve where these at-risk big cats are heavily protected.
