Lion King Of Beasts
Mixed Media - Mixed Painting
Lions and all big cats are amongst my most favorite animals and every time I see them I admire the sheer power and dignity they portray in the way they carry on with their every day living, but in my humble opinion, the Lion truly is the King - at least of the Big Cats. More information on lions for those interested -:
These kings of the jungle can weigh between 250 and 550 pounds, depending on sex and age and can grow up to be 14 years old in the wild and over the age of 20 years old in captivity. They become capable at hunting at the age of two and are fully grown after 5 or 6 years. Male lions are distinguishable for their impressive manes, which signifies their masculinity and reflects their health. The darker and thicker the mane, the healthier the lion. It allows the lions to appear stronger and frightening to warn off enemies, particularly humans, and appeals to lionesses that are scientifically proven to mate more with lions with thick and dark manes. Lions with no manes are either genetically inbred or have been castrated.
