10 Interesting Lion Facts for kids.

A visit to Werribee Open Range Zoo resulted in a reignited interest in lions for my kids. We read many different and interesting facts about lions and came up with a list of our 10 favourite facts about lions.

Feeding time for the lions at Werribee Open Range Zoo in Victoria. It was cool to see them this close!

1. Lions are the only cats that live in groups, called prides.

2. While the male lions are defending the pride’s territory, the female lions do most of the hunting. Despite this, the males eat first.

3. An adult male's roar can be heard up to 8km away.

4. A good gauge of a male lion’s age is the darkness of his mane. The darker the mane, the older the lion.

5. The name for a baby lion is a cub, whelp or lionet.

6. When cubs are first born, they weigh only around 1.5kg (3 lbs). They are completely dependent on their mother.

7. The heaviest lion on record weighed a huge 375 kg (826 lb).

8. In the wild, lions rest for around 20 hours a day.

9. In the wild, lions live for an average of 12 years and up to 16 years. In captivity, they can live up to 25 years.

10. Lions and tigers are so closely related that if you shaved them you wouldn't be able to tell them apart.
