Weight Loss Plans
Le lion (Panthera leo) est un mammifère carnivore de la famille des félidés du genre Panthera (félins). Il est surnommé « le roi des animaux » car sa crinière lui donne un aspect semblable au Soleil, qui apparaît comme « le roi des astres ». Le mâle adulte, aisément reconnaissable à son importante crinière, accuse une masse moyenne qui peut être variable selon les zones géographiques où il se trouve, allant de 174,9 kg pour les lions de Kruger à 217 kg pour les lions de Transvaal. Certains spécimens très rares peuvent atteindre voire exceptionnellement dépasser 250 kg. Un mâle adulte se nourrit de 7 kg de viande chaque jour contre 5 kg chez la femelle. Le lion est un animal grégaire, c’est-à-dire qu’il vit en larges groupes familiaux, contrairement aux autres félins. Son espérance de vie, à l’état sauvage, est comprise entre 7 et 12 ans pour le mâle et 14 à 20 ans pour la femelle, mais il dépasse fréquemment les 30 ans en captivité.
The lion (Panthera leo) is one of the four big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. With some males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight, it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger. Wild lions currently exist in sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia (with an endangered remnant populations reside in Gir Forest National Park in India) while other types of lions have disappeared from North Africa and Southwest Asia in historic times. Until the late Pleistocene, about 10,000 years ago, the lion was the most widespread large land mammal after humans. They were found in most of Africa, across Eurasia from western Europe to India, and in the Americas from the Yukon to Peru. The lion is a vulnerable species, having seen a major population decline of 30–50% over the past two decades in its African range. Lion populations are untenable outside designated reserves and national parks. Although the cause of the decline is not fully understood, habitat loss and conflicts with humans are currently the greatest causes of concern. Within Africa, the West African lion population is particularly endangered.
