Lions climb trees to escape pesky Bites, spot #prey and any intruders, seek shade, a habit passed on to the future generation unlike other cats, lions are very social animals. They live in groups, called #prides, of around 30 lions. A pride consists of up to three males, a dozen related females, and their cubs or lioness. The size of the pride is determined by the availability of food and water. If resources are scarce, the pride becomes smaller. Pride Members keep track of one another by roaring. Both males and females have a very powerful roar that can be heard up to 8 km away .Males and females take on very different roles in the pride. Male lions spend their time guarding their territory and their cubs. They maintain the boundaries of their territory, which can be as large as 260 sq. km, by roaring, marking it with urine, and chasing off intruders. Their thick manes, a unique trait to male lions, protect their necks when they fight with challengers. Female lions are the primary hunters of the group. They are smaller and more agile than males. But since their prey is still generally faster than them, they use teamwork to bring an animal down. Fanning out, they form a semicircle, with the smaller, weaker lionesses herding the prey towards the center. Then the stronger females knock the animal down and make the kill. Lions usually hunt at night. Their prey includes antelopes, buffaloes, zebras, young elephant’s rhinos, hippos, wild hogs, crocodiles and giraffes. But they also sometimes eat smaller prey like mice, birds, #hares, lizards, and tortoises. They are not above stealing kills from other carnivores, like hyenas, wild dogs, cheetahs, and #leopards, or scavenging spoiled meat. After a successful hunt, all the lions in the pride share the meal. But there is a pecking order, with the adult males taking first claim followed by the lionesses and finally the cubs Uganda’s famous tree-climbing lions of the Ishasha sector are found in large fig trees in the remote southern extremity of the park. These tree-dwelling lions prey on the Topi, Uganda Kob, and Cape buffalo which graze Ishasha beautiful acacia studded savanna. Though climbing trees is not common behavior amongst most lions, the lions in this area are regularly found off the ground, they climb to escape tsetse flies and other pesky bites, to seek out shade in the sweltering African heat, to get a bird’s eye view of any intruders in their surroundings (territory) and any potential prey Lastly young lions see older lions climb trees and copy the behavior so the habit remains in that pride. And like any skill, the more.
