i thought these guys live longer but their average life span is ten to fourteen years. males are closer to ten due to the fact that they fight with rivals regularly. apparently the stamina of lions isn’t great. they can get up to pretty fast speeds of fifty miles per hour but they’re sprinters, not lovers i mean marathoners. they hunt in packs. although i think the lionesses do the hunting. unfortunately, the populations of lions is also diminishing due in part to loss of habitat and humans being humans. panthera leo in moleskine.
