Caption

Male lions (Panthera leo). Juvenile male lion licking the face of a fellow pride member. These large carnivores are social animals, living in prides consisting of several adult females plus juveniles, adolescents and one or more adult males. Young males, such as those seen here, must leave their birth pride at the age of around 3 years. After leaving they remain in a group or coalition of two or more males. Eventually the coalition will oust other resident males from a pride and become dominant, gaining access to breeding females. P. leo is found in savannah and scrubland throughout sub-Saharan Africa and in scattered areas in India.
