The biggest lion on record weighed in at 826 pounds! That’s almost half of a ton! Imagine 7 moms all rolled into one giant cat, and you’ve got an idea or how big this lion was.
Lions can run up to fifty miles per hour, and their roar can be heard from 5 miles away!!
They also sleep twenty hours a day. We guess that’s a perk of being King of the Jungle. Even though they don’t live in jungles. They live in the plains of Africa in areas called savannas.
Tigers are actually the largest of the feline (cat) family, and they live in the jungles of Asia. Maybe the tiger should be the King of the Jungle?
