Lion's coat is a tawny color with white underparts often
faintly spotted (especially in East Africa); black tail
tuft, ear backs, and lips; mane individually varies from
blond to black. Lion cubs are often woolly with grayish,
have spotted coats, and change into their adult coat by
3 months of age.
Lions spend 20 hours out of 24 conserving energy, becoming
active in late afternoon when mothers retrieve, suckle,
and socialize with young cubs and one another. The Lion
hunts early and late nights, carrying over for a couple
hours after daybreak. Lions can become active any time,
day or night, hungry or gorged, if prey are an easy catch.
Lion's live wherever there are medium and large sized
herbivores. Lions feed on zebras, gazelles and other animals.
