Discover the hunting habits of African lions

African lions and lions in general are generally strong animals, with a very assertive, clever way of prey.
 
Lions are said to be opportunistic predators, possessing stealthy steps according to their prey. They will grab the animal nearest them without considering the age, gender or condition of the prey.
Lions often cup prey after they “catch” it, but it is “eaten fresh”, but they can still eat leftovers, even rotting food of other carnivorous animals to when they are unable to hunt.
 
If there is an abundance of food, the lion usually eats every 3 to 4 days. But they can also live without any food for a week. The average lion consumes between 5 and 7 kg of meat per day.
An adult lion can kill about 15 prey each year. The usual rule for African lions is that they only hunt enough food, but they also make a little extra to “subsidize” young or sick lions in the herd. .
 
The way of hunting of African lions
 
African lions when hunting predominantly use their eyes. Although the visual cues that play the main role, finishing olfactory will also help inform them where there are prey.
 
Most hunting takes place in poor lighting conditions, ie night or early morning. In daylight, when every animal can see clearly, hunting right now is extremely disadvantageous. Because lion hunting techniques mainly depend on stalking.

 
In fact, the “durable” African lion is not good, so they often come very close to their prey before attacking. Lions often take determined attacks when they are about 10m away from the prey, rarely exceeding 20m. They do not hunt in groups and hunt alone.
Usually the lioness hunts more than the male lion, but in the case of large-sized prey, it is necessary to be strong when the male lion will act.
 
Lions are a powerful animal, they can use the power of their hips to attack and defeat an adult zebra. They can inflict a fatal blow to the head antelope, only a slap in the face is enough to stun the prey.
