Africa’s top predator is the lion. Surpassing all other predators, their weight and size is much greater than Africa’s other big cats. Leopards are next in weight, but cheetahs are next in size. However, leopards are much smaller, but they are more compact. Cheetahs are tall, but very slim.
Lion males are much larger than lionesses, and have a thick mane. Females don’t have a mane. Varying in colour from a ginger, to brown, to black, lion manes can be very impressive. The function of the lion’s mane is to make him look larger and therefore more intimidating to rival males, but also to protect him from the claws of his rivals in a fight. Fights between competing lions are legendary. This is where the expression “Fur Will Fly” originated. Male lions are often left with fatal wounds after such a confrontation. Victors always take over the territory and, in most cases, the females of the resident prides.
