Lions are social hunters, both males and females taking part in the hunt. They normally kill with a neck bite that breaks the neck or severs vital blood vessels.
Lions were formerly more widely distributed but authorities differ on whether the cave lion of Eurasia and the American lion were different species from the African lion or only different subspecies.
Formerly most of Africa; now mainly restricted to parks and reserves
All habitats except for extensive forests or driest deserts
Carnivorous, mainly zebra and antelope
