Lions are the most sociable of all the big cats. They live in groups called prides, usually consisting of related females and their offspring. The typical pride consists of ten to fifteen lions, with several adult females, their cubs, and up to four males.  Adult female lions need to eat about 11 pounds of meat daily, while adult males eat 16 pounds or more daily. 

The main threats to African lions are human-wildlife conflict, natural prey decline, habitat loss, climate change, and wildlife trade.
