LION (Panthera leo)
The lion is unique to cats in that it is social, forming prides comprised of multiple generations and genders. Working as a team, lions are able to take down prey like buffalo, zebra, and in some cases even elephants. Though we only think of Africa when we think of lions, they are also found in India. These lions are called Asiatic lions, for which we are planning a tour in the future.
