It's World Lion Day! Have you ever thought about how tough it is to be the apex predator on the African plains? Surviving in the heat, cold, rain, bugs, and not to mention the loss of habitat. Then imagine not being at the top of your game when the hunt is on—simply missing a tooth could mean the loss of a meal. Lions are beautiful creatures, but it's not all a picture perfect existence, life is tough in the bush.
