Time for a Catnap

Time for a Catnap Photo
The most social of all the big cats, lions live in groups called "prides." As part of their communal lifestyle, they may nap together and even nurse one another's cubs. A pride typically consists of a number of related lionesses (mothers, sisters, cousins), their cubs, and a few unrelated males that have successfully fought for access. The females are the primary hunters; the adult males defend the pride¹s territory from other males.
