Why are male lions king of the jungle?Well if you look at it this way the lionesess do all the hunting.Males don`t do much.The thing is that males get to eat first but did they do anything to get what they are eating?I personally think the lionesess should be crowned Queens of the jungle!What about you?

I used to see it that way too!! I've since learned that while it seems like the male does nothing but lay around waiting for the females of the pride to make a kill, and then EATS FIRST, he has a most important role to play. And a very dangerous one too!! He must save his strength to fend off any ploy for a takeover by other younger males wanting 'his' pride!!! (Often there are two against one) Know what the first thing a new male does when he takes over? He kills any and ALL the cubs. He does that so the females will have litters with only his babies. So the male African Lion has a most dangerous and important job. (And they don't even live in jungles so I have no idea why or how that term came about Laughing )

That's my story. Wink
