The African lions can be adopted for £100 for 1 year or £250 for 3 years.
African lions (Panthera Leo) inhabit grasslands and open woods. A pride can consist of up to 13 lions, usually with one adult male lion. The lionesses hunt in a pack, often targeting large animals such as wildebeest and gazelles. Long, retractable claws help the lion to grab and hold prey. The species' rough tongue helps it to peel the skin of prey animals away from flesh and flesh away from bone. Adult males typically weigh 189 kg; the heaviest male on record weighed 272 kg (Mount Kenya).
