Rumble / Funny & Cute AnimalsLions are social animals, and therefore, like being with each other. These lion cubs are the perfect example of such behavior, being all piled up in a corner for a snooze. Doesn't it make you want to be there with them?!

The lion (Panthera leo) is one of the five species of big cats belonging to the Panthera genus, along with the tiger (Panthera tigris), the leopard (Panthera pardus), the jaguar (Panthera onca), and the Snow Leopard (Panthera uncia).

Lions are found in most sub-Saharan countries in Africa, but originally their range used to be much wider, from Northern Africa through Southwest Asia, east into India, and west into Europe.

Lions are found in most African habitats, being only absent from the interior of the Sahara desert and tropical rainforest. When there is not water available for them to drink, they get moisture from their prey, and sometimes even plants, which allows them to live in very arid environments.

Lions are the most social of all cat species, and related females and their cubs live together in groups called prides, and males form coalitions.
The most characteristic feature of lions is the males' prominent mane, which goes from light buff to silvery grey, yellowish red and dark brown.
