I think lions are beautiful. They have a long body, short legs, sharp claws, and large head. Lions are covered with yellow-brown hair. The females don’t look the same as males because the males have manes, and the females don’t have manes. The adult males measure about 10ft (3m) from nose to tail and weigh about 550lbs (250 kg). The adult male can eat 75 pounds (34 kg) of meat in one meal. The favorite food of the lion is medium to large sized animals with hooves, such as zebras and buffalo. Lions also eat smaller animals like lizards, rats, and birds.
I believe that people should help the habitats of lions. Lions are now on the endangered species list because people kill lions. People should not kill lions and people should not take lions to the circus.
Lions can be found in protected game reserves in Africa and India.The lions in the wild rarely live more than 8 to 10 years, whereas in the zoo lions live around 25 years old. Lions live in groups called prides. Lions are the second largest living feline species. They are second only to the tiger. Lions can run for short distances at up to 35 miles (56 km) per hour. When the lions roar the noise they make is so loud it can be heard 5 miles (8 km) away.
