Lion
Social groups of lions, called prides, are composed of one to three males, two to fifteen females, and their offspring. Sometimes young males form their own satellite group. The males protect the territory and get to eat first; the lionesses do most of the hunting. They generally stalk and chase their prey, killing with a bite to the neck although they can also kill with a single back-breaking swat of the paw. Lions usually hunt at night and spend almost twenty hours a day sleeping or lounging with their playful cubs.

Lions in the Water
If not for the efforts of ecologist Christiaan Winterbach and his wife, Hanlie, the swimming lions of the Okavango Delta still would be shrouded in mystery. The husband-and-wife team run a monitoring project that seeks to understand how lions are managing to live in this land of seasonal flooding. We caught up with ecologist Christiaan Winterbach to ask him a few questions about the project and to find out how the swimming lions have been doing since filming.

Predators and Parasites
Predators and parasites are those bugs that eat other bugs. Why are they important? It has to do with the way we grow our food crops and timber species in the most sustainable way. You see, all creatures on our planet belong to a web of life, or ecological system. We are all familiar with the following simple relationship: antelopes eat grass and lions eat the antelopes. In other words, there's always an animal that eats another animal.

Red Lechwe - A Lion's Quarry
By Jason Robey
The Okavango Delta, a rich mosaic of islands and waterways, hosts many of the same wildlife species that live in Africa's dry savannas. Elephants and African buffaloes find ample space in the delta's sprawling flood plains, while hippopotamuses lounge in the many lakes and rivers. As impressive as they are to us, these African giants are far less interesting to lions in the region. It's the slighter herbivores, like zebras and antelopes, which have drawn the great felines to the delta in large numbers.
