Best Answer

Male lions sleep up to 20 hours per day (with one eye open so to speak.) While the females are the hunters the male lions don't and their job is to protect the pride (their harem so to speak.) The male sleeps, but scent and (one eye open off and on) is gathering the strength he needs to spring on command when another male lion tries to steal his pride (female lioness'.) An older Lion will protect his pride, but if it's a younger male lion the younger one usually will back off of the fight rather than to risk death. If two adult male lions fight over the right of a pride there is usually a fight to the death. This takes energy and alertness so a male lion is never really fully asleep. Lion are actually nocturnal creatures. They hunt at night, especially during the full moon. At day break, lion will find somewhere to lie down and rest for the rest of the day.
