African Lion Pride

African Lion Pride

An African lion pride. Most felids remain quite solitary the in nature. But lion is the exception. They are very social animals and usually live in groups called “pride”. Tthe average pride consists of around fifteen lions, including several adult females, up to four males. But extremely large prides, consisting of up over 30 individuals, have been observed. Not all lions live in prides. There is also another social behavior: nomads. Nomad lions range widely and move about sporadically, either singularly or in pairs. Pairs are more frequent among related males who have been excluded from their birth pride. Lions sometimes switch lifestyles: nomads may become a pride member and vice versa. Image: wetu.com
