Lion Facts 306
When male lions take over other prides, they kill almost all the cubs they find there since they like to sire their own. This is why the chances of a cub getting old are low as they have threats from within and from outside. Other animals that pose a threat to cubs are the eagle, hyena, snakes and leopards.
The gestation period for female lions is usually 4 months. Lions are ready to meet when they get to 3 or 4 years. The female acts a bit queer during this time as she prefers not to give birth in the presence of others. She therefore pulls away from the pride, give birth then take care of the cubs on her own until they are more than six weeks old.
