The Asiatic lion is an “meat eater”. It can spend as much as 20 hours a day resting and sleeping. Male lions spend the rest of the day patrolling their territories. The Asiatic lion prefers to hunt at night because it is easier to catch prey. Their food consists mainly of wild boar, buffalo, antelope and deer. Lions also eat livestock carcasses. As a group, think what would happen if a lion disappeared from the food chain?
