Sleeping Lion Cub Photograph

Updated Monday, 18 April 2022

This stunning photograph of the lion taking a nap was sent to us by Trevor Harrison. According to the Wikipedia entry on the Lion, lions spend much of their time resting and are inactive for about 20 hours per day. Although lions can be active at any time, their activity … generally peaks after dusk with a period of socializing and grooming. They spend an average of two hours a day walking and 50 minutes eating – and the rest lazing around and sleeping!
