Commonly referred to as the king of the jungle, Lions combine beauty with strength, and this makes them one of the most majestic animals in the world. The combination of brains and brawn means that they’re experts when it comes to raising their families, marking their territories, hunting and socialising.
However, despite their commanding presence, Lions are considered to be vulnerable due to hunting, habitat loss and diseases.
