  • Lions in the Wild

    lead hard and dangerous lives,

    they have to fight other lions,

    if a lion succeeds in being King of a group

    he stays king for 3 years

    on average -

    then he dies in a fight with a younger lion

    or is expelled and

    often dies slowly and painfully

    of hunger!

    Lions in captivity

    look much more beautiful,

    true Lion Kings,

    probably their lives are much more boring,

    but they do live many more years

    than their brothers

    in the Wild....
