Fun Lion Facts
Simba is the Swahili name for lion. Lion prides are usually described as matriarchal, with communal care for the young. Most lionesses in a pride are related and remain in the same pride that they were born in for life. Conversely, most male lions leave the pride when they are a few years old.
At the base of each lion’s whisker is a black spot. Just like a human’s fingerprint, the patterns that these spots make are unique to each lion. This enables scientists to tell lions apart from each other.
Lions can see six times better in the dark than a human. At night, a reflective coating on the back of their eyes helps capture the moonlight. They also have a white patch of fur underneath their eyes that helps to reflect even more light.
