Why Is the Lion King of the Jungle?
He is not the greatest of all cats. Siberian tigers are larger than African lions. In fact, he is not even the largest in the forest. There are many other animals like elephants and big rhinos. So why is the lion considered the king of the jungle? I wondered about this for a long time in my childhood. In fact, they are good people and live in groups called pride. There are about 10-15 lions proudly and of them, only 2-3 are fully grown lions. Some lions and lambs.
A lot of stories are being told here in India about what a lion’s share is. In fact when the lion hunts proudly, the lion comes after them and takes part in the killing. That is called Lion’s share. This disappointed me when I was younger. Not a big man, is it? So what is it that makes her look so beautiful? But I have a healthy respect for the older generation and their ideas developed over the years of experience. No one has ever disputed the claim that lions are the kings of the jungle. So there must be a reason why they are considered kings.
Lions are the hunters and most of all they feed on pride. They are young and they run and hunt smartly. Male lions will hunt only when needed and when they are alone away from pride. But they are incredibly powerful and can take prey that will need 4-5 lions to kill.
There are several videos on YouTube and other online sites that give you a clear picture of these beautiful creatures. There is a video where a lioness tries to catch a buck in a herd. But despite his experience due to the sheer number of statistics, he is unable to do that. And while filming, a male lion suddenly appears and with 100 strong wild beasts running away suddenly snatches the prey. I was surprised to see this. Just a show of courage and strength is amazing to watch.
There is another video showing a group of wild buffalo attacking a lion cub. The big guy just opened the buffalo and showed courage I don’t think there is another animal in the world. He just kept them away with courage, strength, and determination. No one, not just anyone in the world, can do this.
There are several theories about what will happen if a lion and a leopard of similar size fight. The leopard, though a powerful animal, cannot really defeat a king. See available videos. Lions are mere warriors, naturally born warriors intent on leading and brave. Tigers though they are the best hunters; cannot outrun lions because lions are stronger than lions. In any case, these two magnificent natural creatures do not usually meet because tigers live in forests and lions in grassy areas.
It would be a tragedy if these creatures were not there to see the next generation. While efforts are being made to protect them, human curiosity is also a factor to consider during self-defence.
