A Freshly Fed Lion
The pride had killed a zebra the night before and were still in the process of consuming it. The males had finished eating, as they eat first, and were relaxing by the river. The females and cubs were now eating as we watched the males rest.
The lion (Panthera leo) is in the genus Panthera and the family Felidae. Some males exceed 550 pounds, making it the second-largest cat after the tiger.
