|Lioness stare. South Africa|
There is nothing quite like waking up to the sound of the deep guttural roar and grunts of a lion staking his claim! There is something rather scary and unnerving in the dark hearing one of these guys make such a noise! A lions roar can be heard up to 5 miles away!
This video was taken on the reserve of our Wilderness Conservation Programme in the early hours of the morning.
Many cat species live a fundamentally solitary existence, however, the lion is an exception has developed a social system based on teamwork and an extended but closed family unit centred around a group of related females.
