African Lion

African lions are unique among cats in that they live in social groups called prides. Prides hunt together to bring down moderate to large-sized prey, which is shared with all members of the group according to strict social rules.

The lions at Zoo Atlanta may typically be seen year-round, except during the coldest or rainiest days, when they may choose to spend time in their indoor night areas.
