The lion (panthera leo) is closely related to the tiger, but different environmental influences resulted in a different evolution. That is why the lion is a little smaller and chunkier. This makes it less agile, but not the slightest bit less strong. Opposite to the tiger the lion loves open spaces, just like the African savannah, which it typically inhabits. At the same time it is very social, lions live in prides, and hunt in groups – a unique features among cats. However, it is the lionesses that go hunting. The male lions are fully occupied with defending the pride area against mostly conspecific intruders.

If the male's mane is not intimidating enough, it lets its roar sound, which can be heard from a long distance. Because of this majestic roar the lion is often called the "King of Animals". Still, it is not immune against changes to his habitat: Together with the conflicts with men this causes a decline in population and the lion belongs to the endangered group of animals.

Our little lion cub "Uzuri" still has to learn how to roar. Yet it already is very keen and follows its mother until the age of two. During this time the cub learns everything it needs to survive. Young lionesses stay with their pride afterwards, apart from a few exceptions they even stay for all their life. Young lions on the contrary leave the pride and spend some years wandering around, until they find another pride to live with.
