The lion has always been a symbol of strength. Its powerful roar can be heard from five miles away! After the tiger, the lion is the second largest cat in the world! “Stay Back, Rufus, please stay back”!
Lions can be found in Africa and the Sasan-Gir National Park in India, but at one time they could be found in Europe and Asia as well. Lions are carnivores which means they are meat eaters. Rufus says that just because they do not eat vegetables does not mean that you shouldn’t eat yours! Another piece of good advice coming from such a little dog!
The male lion, who weighs anywhere from 300 – 500 pounds, has a thick, bushy mane around his face, but he doesn’t shave. Lions can run at 50 miles per hour for short distances, and they can leap 36 feet! Lions would need a big hopscotch board if they could be pleasant enough to join in that game! Rufus likes hopscotch! The Havanese can really hop, and Rufus is no exception. He prefers, nevertheless, to run off with the marker! “Rufus, stop that and please give it back”!
Meanwhile, unlike other cats, lions live in social groups called prides which consist of as many as 15 lions. They sleep during the day and come out at night which means that they are nocturnal. They are territorial, too. This land is my land….Hear me ROAR!
