Lionesses will often bring back a small animal, such as a baby antelope, alive so that the cubs can practice their hunting skills.

This is the most beautiful sound in the whole world!!.. Every day should be World Lion Day..!!.. Let lions live!
Regrann from @stephantuengler - Let us roar together on World Lion Day! This sound must never disappear in the wild and let us fight for it together. Lion numbers have fallen down from 500.000 at the beginning of the 20th century to as few as 20.000 now.
Thank you very much for visiting my account, Stephan. Wishing you all out there a great day 🐾

Many zoos claim that the reason why they exist and continue to breed animals is to help protect endangered species, but that’s not true. In fact, most animals in zoos aren’t endangered, and those who are will likely never be released into natural habitats.
Zoos and wildlife parks almost always favor big, “popular” animals while ignoring smaller animals who need protection. Plus, keeping animals in cages does nothing to help their species in the wild. If zoos really wanted to save animals from extinction, they would be helping protect animals’ natural habitats, not keeping them in prisons.

A lions eyesight is arguably their most important sense. Along with a highly developed sense of smell and incredible hearing, these apex predators have a big advantage over most of their prey. Their eyesight, all though no better than ours during the day is far superior at night, lions are said to be able to see eight times better than us in the dark.
Lions see mainly in blue and greens, with highly developed night vision. This doesn’t mean they  can see in the dark, if it where pitch black a lion would be blind as well. The way a lions eye is designed helps them pick up and amplify very faint light such as the that emitted from stars and the moon.

"On World Lion Day we're highlighting the plight of thousands of lions under threat from unethical tourism practices across Africa.

Many tourists are unwittingly creating demand that subjects lions to a lifetime of misery from the moment they are born.

Lion cubs are intensively bred and separated from their mothers at just a few weeks old to be used as photo props and ‘lion walks’ as they get older.

Unlike conservation programs, commercial lion parks do not boost wild population numbers as these lions can never be safely release into the wild.

Be an animal friendly traveller and see lions in the wild – where they belong! 🦁

Regrann from @nortonsimon - One of #Vishnu's most powerful avatars is #Narasimha, the Man-lion, emphasizing the integration of animal and human forms in Hindu iconography. Vishnu is shown disemboweling the demon Hiranyakasipu while Shiva and Brahma look down from the heavens; four devotees watch in awe as the gory scene unfolds. #WorldLionDay 🦁

#natgeowild Los leones han sido celebrados a lo largo de la historia por su valor y fuerza. Una vez recorriendo la mayor parte de África y partes de Asia y Europa. Hoy en dia sólo se encuentran en partes del África subsahariana, a excepción de una población muy pequeña de leones asiáticos que sobrevive en el bosque gir de la India.

Lions within a pride are often affectionate! While they rest, the pride often shows this affection through touching, head rubbing, licking and purring.

Smile it is Tuesday. .. he is happy because he is eating (or chewing)! #welovetoeat 😆 #cub #lions #wildlife #happytuesday #naturephotography
#Repost @natgeo (@get_repost) ・・・
No, this lion cub was not happy to see me, it was just doing what all cubs do—chew on almost anything. But I was happy to see it, because just a few years ago near the Matetsi River Lodge on the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe, not far from Victoria Falls, poaching and trophy hunting had nearly wiped out most of the game animals. Conservation and anti-poaching have paid off and now Matetsi is again home to several prides of lions.

I can tell a lot of stories about Radja, the lion at @zoozuerich. In most of them, he plays the role of a grumpy old cat. He just seems to dislike people. What I can't say about him, is that he doesn't care for his lionesses. If you make a lady happy, she'll make you happy, right Radja? 😉

@ the.online.business.coach Lions have been celebrated throughout history for their courage and strength. They once roamed most of Africa and parts of Asia and Europe. Today they are found only in parts of sub-Saharan Africa, except for one very small population of Asian lions that survives in India's Gir Forest.

Here's to supporting scientists and conservationists working to save big cats in the wild! #WorldLionDay
