What gender of the lions hunt?
All lions hunt. Hunting is more difficult for males because of their full manes, so the females typically do the hunting. Male lions who do not have a pride, and therefore no females to do their hunting, are fully capable of catching a meal.

Singly or, more effectively, in a pack. Loinesses do the majority of the hunting, males pirate their food from the females. The males only become involved in the hunt when the prey is too large for the lionesses to bring down.Most times,females work alone but with other females so they dont have to …take orders for the males. but at times when the females need more help the all go and look for male and one will mate. Lions can catch their food by camouflaging in the golden grass, since it matches the color of their fur, and leap at their prey when the prey doesn't see the lion. A lion is an ambush hunter, they have 2 or 3 lionesses come in, and break up the herd, guiding them towards the others in the pride. They then (almost instantly) find the weak, and single them out. Then another lioness attacks, trying to scatter the herd more, often completely separating the individual from the herd. Another pair of lionesses then moves in to head the unlucky beast off, and then, if successful it is tackled, and pinned down as the others arrive. A killing bite is inflicted on it's throat, sometimes just a pair of small holes that pierced an artery, sometimes (on Cape Buffalo), they strangle it because the hide is to thick to pierce. Rarely do they exert their potential, for fear of damaging their teeth. Normally the alpha never lifts a foot when capturing a meal, only when tackling big prey like the Cape Buffalo the male's strength is needed. His primary job is to protect the pride from rival males, and hunting means risk of injury, which is bad for the entire pride. Only about 3 out of 10 hunts end in a kill. a mountain lion first put his month on their prys neck and twist it until they cant breath that's how they kill it (he's the best animalll) camoflage in the tall grass and jumps out at prey as a pride Lions live in prides. The pride is headed by one or two male lions with many female lions and cubs. The male lions role is predominantly to mate with the lionesses and protect the pride.

Lions hunting They most certainly do hunt. They normally hunt at daybreak or at nightfall. Their diet consists of mostly antelope, but zebra and other herbivorous animals are in their diet too. Most hunting is done as a pride, the lionesses will hunt together.

Answer WHY WHERE LIONS HUNTED ? I think the lion were hunted because they use to hunt farmers stock. So the farmers would have a shot gun and shoot the lions when they came near their farm lands. There also was the problem of people who hunted lions for the fun of it they would go out and hunt fo…r the lions and then shot them and skin them and leave the reast to rot. Or they would take the whole lion and sell the meat and get the body stuffed so they could have them in their house as a tropy. Also, the Barbary Lions which are now extinct in the wild, weren't hunted but, they were used in the Roman times to do this: EAT CHRISTIANS THAT THE ROMANS THREW INTO THEM!

Lions are at the top of their food chain, meaning nothing eats it, but this is not strickly true, it is only true for fully grown lions, not cubs.. But sometimes lion cubs can be eaten by jackals, hyenas, leopards, martial eagles and snakes . Also buffaloes , should they catch the scent of lion… cubs, often stampede towards the thicket or den where they are being kept, doing their best to trample the cubs to death whilst warding off the lioness.. Furthermore, when one or more new males oust the previous male(s) associated with a pride, the conqueror(s) often kill any existing young cubs, perhaps because females do not become fertile and receptive until their cubs mature or die.. Answer . no- one. ( Full Answer )
NOT for FOOD, But to keep them from EATING THEIR FOOD . Lions do not hunt cheetahs. On the contrary, lions and cheetahs are both preying animals. They hunt other small mammals such as gazelles and antelopes.
A Lion is a Male and a Lioness is Female, that is if you are refering to the animal.
The opposite gender of a lion is a lioness. Lionesses can form apride when they are in a group.
Yes they do, most of the time anyway. They're the ones that mainly do the work when it comes to lions. The only thing the male cats do is defend the territory [which of what I've learned so far doesn't get disturbed that often],sleep for long periods of times and lay around doing nothing, getting fe…males pregnant, and eating the juicy parts of the meal that the lionesses had just gotten tiring and worning themselves out from for the whole entire pride [meaning pack] to eat. Plus, on top of that all they have a huge nursery to feed, clean, and take care of. But sometimes they sneak huge bites when and if it's fresh meat before they take it to the rest. I learned that from Animal Planet. ( Full Answer )

Lions are what's called obligate carnivores, meaning they haveto eat meat. . If you're a wild animal, and a meat eater, there are only twooptions, either hunt and kill for yourself - become a predator, orfind animals that are already dead and eat them - become ascavenger. . And while lions will ha…ppily eat off somebody elses kill, theyalso do a lot of their own hunting. ( Full Answer )
Yes. The female lionesses of the pride do the bulk of the hunting. Male lions duties mostly involve protecting the pride and fathering cubs. However, in cases where the pride is trying to bring down a large prey like a Giraffe or a Cape Buffalo, male lions too involve in the hunt.
Lion cubs are taught to Hun from their mothers. However, it willonly be the female lions that go on to hunt for the pride.
I think that they hunt together for support, just in case the other animal goes for a hit.
Humans are the only predators of lions. They were once hunted for sport, and their hides, teeth, and claws, were collected as trophies. Nowadays lions are a protected species though they are still killed illegally by poachers. lions are hunted by people Humans are the only creatures that hunt l…ions. There was a time when lions were hunted for sport, and their hides, teeth, and claws were collected as trophies. Now, because of declining numbers, lions are protected, though poachers still hunt them illegally. The lion has few actual threats. Their greatest danger is humans. A lion can easily handle a single hyena, but a pack of hyenas would make short work of a lion. nothing can eat a lion by George aged 11 and a 1/2 Lions are at the top of the food chain. So no other animal would consistently prey on a lion. However lions, when dead can be eaten by decomposers like fungi (mushroom like things) and things like maggots (small bugs) and so only when the lion dies, scavengers eat them. Some scavengers include vultures and hyenas. Otherwise when lions are alive, those same scavengers would be on the lions menu! Also we humans eat them you can even find them at some restaurants! Lions have no predators other than man, hyena, and wild dog. Thisis because lions typically live in prides which is a group offemales and anywhere between 1 to 5 male lions. It is infrequentfor them to live life as a single lion. Man does not eat lion per se, nor does hyena. But wild dogs willeat a lion. On a very rare occasion, a large constricting snake oran alligator may kill and eat a lion. Nevertheless, lion is not aregular part of any animal's diet. Lions are often killed by other lions, but they don't eat eachother. Elephant, rhinoceros, African buffalo, hippopotamus can andwill kill lions and sometimes a lion is killed by a lucky kick froma grazing animal that the lion is trying to kill. However, theseanimals do not eat meat and, thus, only kill lions in self-defense,to defend their offspring, or for revenge. Elephants have beenknown to hunt down and kill the exact lions who have killed one oftheir calves. When a lion dies, its body returns to the earth and is consumed bybacteria, parasite, and scavengers--the same as any other livingcreature, large or small. Humans They are at the top of the food chain. King of the jungle.... Humans hippos ( Full Answer )
Well as for the benifiets it would be protection against other "prides" in the case of lions, more successful hunts i.e bring down larger prey. Hyenas for the same reason but they are more scavengers then hunters if they see another animal killed or left they will use their numbers to scare away tha…t animal. ( I hate them both tbh) cheetahs ftw. ( Full Answer )
They can hunt alone quite successfully but when they hunt as a pride (not a pack) some take on the role of driving the prey to others waiting a head in ambush. It is more efficient to do this and normally it is the lionesses that do the hunting. Not that lions are the only cat that lives in a soc…ial group. ( Full Answer )
Lion refers to a male lion and the species in general. Lioness refers to a female lion.
An adult lion is a lot bigger and stronger than a cheetah. It's farmore likely that the lion would kill the cheetah. But they docompete at least partially for the same food, so it's quite commonfor lions to kill cubs of the other big cats when they find them. Cheetahs do not eat lions will because t…he lion is lot more powerful than the cheetah. The cheetah is way to fast for the lion to even caught, but lions do kill cheetah cubs if the mother is not there to protect them. The lion is also way bigger than the cheetah to. A male lion can grow about 330 to 550 pounds. The lion is ultimate predator in Africa. Lions are known to be the most dangerous threat to a cheetah. No. Cheetah's are much smaller and weaker than lions. There is no way a cheetah can attack or kill a full grown lion both male and female. However they can easily kill a lion cub.

Yes and No the lion can't even beat the elephant but they can beat the elephant babies.
The gender of a lion well the lion and tigress are both normally called lions so both are males or females.
Lionesses do the majority of the hunting for their pride, being smaller, swifter and more agile than the males, and unencumbered by the heavy and conspicuous mane, which causes overheating during exertion. They act as a co-ordinated group in order to stalk and bring down the prey successfully. Howev…er, if nearby the hunt, males have a tendency to dominate the kill once the lionesses have succeeded and eaten. They are more likely to share with the cubs than with the lionesses, but rarely share food they have killed by themselves. Smaller prey is eaten at the location of the hunt, thereby being shared among the hunters; when the kill is larger it often is dragged to the pride area. There is more sharing of larger kills,  although pride members often behave aggressively toward each other as each tries to consume as much food as possible. ( Full Answer )

The gender of an animal doesn't matter when it comes to the animal that the bob cat hunts. The bob cat will hunt the animal preferably a rabbit and eat it later on.
African lions? Yes. Mountain lions (cougars, pumas)? Yes. Lots of game farms in Texas, where, for a price, one can bag a trophy for the den. And cougars can be killed without restriction in Texas, part of their natural range.
Rhodesian Ridgebacks were often bred to hunt lions. And the way they hunted them was known as Hounding. Hunters usually released a large pack of these dogs at once. They'd track the lion and hold it at bay until the hunter could shoot it.
Usually they don't. But lions are meat eaters, always looking foran easy meal. If they see an elephant that looks weak they mightjust try to kill and eat it.

They don't specifically hunt lions as their main source of food but I suppose if there was a lion just chillin, the anaconda might try to to make a meal of it.
Lions stay with mom for 2 years so they are 2 years old when they hunt with the pride.
There are two reasons why female lions do the majority of the hunting. One is simply that the male lion's mane makes him more conspicuous, meaning that it's easier for prey to see him coming. The other is that the main role of the male is to protect the pride - he must save his strength for fighting… off invading males. Incidentally, male lions do hunt. They will join the females on occasion, particularly when hunting large prey such as buffalo, and young males that have left their natal pride but not yet taken over one of their own have no choice but to hunt for themselves..

A single lion pride can have one or two male lions. 10 or more female lionesses are known to be a part of the pride. Apart from them there can be numerous cubs and adolescents in a pride. Prides with upto 3 male lions have been seen and recorded but the usual male number in a pride is one or at most… two. Lions hunt as a group/pride.

Mountain lions are carnivores and generally hunt at dawn and dusk. Still, they are active by day in areas undisturbed by man. Like other cats, the mountain lion stalls its prey, sprinting after it if it attempts to flee. Then, pouncing on the animal's back with powerful leap that knocks it to the gr…ound, the mountain lion kills its prey with a single bite to the nape of the neck. Mountain lions have large hunting territories, and they eat most kinds of animals. Throughout their range, deer is their favorite meal. ( Full Answer )

When they are hungry. They usually hunt at night but can also hunt during the day.
Lions need substancial amounts of meat per day, and to hunt mice to fulfil this would involve hunting hundreds, if not thousands of mice per day.
Only extreme hunger would cause a lion pride to hunt elephants. It's a very dangerous business, and a nice little antelope would be a lot easier.
From my understanding they both do. But the male lions move the pride to the animal on which they disire to eat.
Yes, teenaged lions hunt. In fact, in the wild, by the time a lion is a teenager in human years, it is considered very old. In lion years, a teenaged lion is capable of hunting, and practically an adult.
Both male and female lions hunt for food. However, when a male lion is strong enough, fierce enough, and smart enough he will fight to win the right to mate with all the females of a Pride (the term used for a family of lions), If he deposes the current "King" of the Pride, he then spends most of hi…s energy defending that right. In addition, this give him the right to dine on whatever prey food is supplied by some other member of his Pride. In lean times he will also hunt for food to support himself and his Pride (but he still eats first). Bachelor groups of young males also hunt for food. If they didn't, they would starve.

Go to the zoo with a large gun. Do not attempt to hunt them in the wild. Lions are predators at the top of the food chain. Humans may consider themselves above lions, but if you put the average person up against the average lion, the lion will always win. Our technology helps us to a point, but that… technology can be used to hunt many more animals that are more plentiful, easier to catch, and tastier to eat. ( Full Answer )
African lions have not been hunted for decades- they are a protected species, and it is illegal to set out to kill one. It is only legal in self-defence, if the animal is about to attack you and you have no option but to shoot it. In the days when they WERE hunted, it was simply for prestige- they c…ouldn't be eaten for food, it was simply because some people got a feeling of power and triumph at overpowering a fierce beast by killing it and having it's head mounted on a plaque. They also used to make lionskin rugs out of their skins for the same reason. ( Full Answer )
Lions are top of the food chain, so there isn't an animal that specifically hunts lions. On the other hand, Humans hunt lions all the time, that is if the human can kill the lion before it kills them.
Mostly the females, as they're a bit faster and more agile. Themales do help out with bringing down big prey like giraffes andbuffaloes though.
