They’re not only fun for all the family, but they are also helping save the planet. Could it get any better? As if that wasn’t enough, zoos give animals from all around the world the chance to see each other up close when they would never meet in the wild. After all, how many times have you seen polar bears a few feet away from elephants? There is one animal that is king of the jungle as well as ruler of the zoo – the mighty lion. These big cats are a massive attraction for many tourists, but there was one lion that was about to cause quite the stir. These felines are some of the greatest predators in the world, so how would he react to having a dachshund thrown into his enclosure?
Lions are the second largest big cat in the world, just behind tigers. Although they are mighty, these felines have a complex social hierarchy. Lions live in groups called “prides” and can have up to 40 members. However, they must all follow the alphas of the group if they want to keep their place. The cats once lived across the entire planet, but now we will have to take a trip to Africa if we want to see the animals in the wild.
At least once we are there, they should be pretty easy to find if they roar as they have the loudest of any big cat in the world. In fact, lions will often use their mighty roar to mark their territory. There is no telling what a pride of lions will do if someone crosses their path. Better hope you can run fast!
Big cats are some of the best-loved animals in the world, with lions being a favorite of many. Their courage, strength, and pride has even made them the national animal for many countries around the world. Although they are loved, no one knew what to do when a dachshund was thrown into a lion’s enclosure. These little dogs usually only stand around 3 inches off the floor. How would the little pooch ever be able to take on the force of a lion? Should they jump in to save the day, or were they about to witness the ultimate showdown? Sure, cats and dogs have been fighting for years, but now it looked as though the lion finally had an advantage. What would you have done?
