African Lions

Habitat: Valley of the Kings

Just like housecats, these “kings of the jungle” enjoy napping 18-20 hours a day. Look for them sunning on a preferred perch—sometimes on their back with all four feet in the air! But, be warned that lions mark their territory, so make sure you are out of range when they are in close proximity.
