African Lion The African lion can be found naturally only in Africa. Lions do not live in heavy forests or jungles as most people think and they do no inhabit desert areas because there isn't enough food. A typical pride consists of two males, seven females and several cubs. Females are usually sisters or cousins that have grown up together.
Despite their tremendous power and speed, lions are more likely to fail than to succeed while hunting. Humans can learn a lot about perserverance by watching the African lion.
