Lion Quotes

Lion Quotes

Even though they do not live in jungles, lions hold the title of Kings of the Jungle. Our selection of lips quotes talk to the physical appearance of the lion, their confident gait, bravery, and fearful roars single that them out as a superior. The lion is a well-muscled cat with a long body, large head, and short legs.

We can find lions mainly in sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian state, Gujarat. Their preferred habitat includes savanna, grasslands, dense scrub and open woodlands.

With great night vision, lions make excellent nocturnal predators. They are social animals that live together in groups called prides. The males are fierce protectors of the pride's territory while the females (lionesses) take charge of the cubs.

In the ecosystem, lions contribute in no small measure to keep herbivore populations, especially big ones like zebras, giraffes and buffaloes in check. Poaching, climate change and habitat loss pose threats to these extraordinary creatures.

Below are some quotes about the majestic animals we know as lions.

Grown lions weigh anything from 300 to 500 pounds. That's huge! Full-grown males are about 2.2 meters long, tail excluded. While females who are smaller in size can grow up to 1.5 meters and weigh about 180kg. The lion’s coat is short and varies in colour from buff yellow, orange-brown, or silvery grey to dark brown. Their tails have a tuft on the tip that is darker than the rest of the coat.

From watching them, we can consider lions to be quite charismatic. In the societies of lions, manes are instruments of intimidation and seduction. Lionesses even prefer lions with full, dark manes as mates.

I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.

- Alexander the Great


Considered as one of the most influential persons in history, Alexander the Great became king at 20. He ruled over the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon, conquered Persia and invaded India. He was a great tactician who had a record of being undefeated in battle. Military academies throughout the world measure military prowess using Alexander's standard and still teach his tactics.

This lion quote gives credit to the extraordinary bravery of lions. Every Pride has a leader who can only be replaced by another lion who proves to be stronger in battle. When a coalition of ousted males takes control of a Pride, they kill the cubs of the defeated lions. They do this to get the lionesses to mate with them and prolong their bloodline.

The lion's roar is the loudest of all the big cats. It can reach up to 114 decibels. That's 25 times louder than a gas-powered lawnmower. The sound can travel a distance of 8 kilometres. Lions roar to advertise their presence, scare off Intruders, warn the Pride of impending danger and as a show of power among other males.

No other creatures of the savannah sleep as deeply or as soundly as lions, but after all, lions are the main reason for not sleeping soundly.

- Elizabeth Marshall Thomas


American author, Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, has published fiction, non-fiction books and articles on animal behaviour, Paleolithic life, and the Kung Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert. Thomas, in her publications, gives insight into the relationship between animals and humans. Her book The Hidden Life of Dogs (amazon) became a New York Times bestseller. She also contributes, along with Sy Montgomery, to a column called "Tamed/Untamed" in the Boston Globe.

The lion sleeps for an astonishing 20 hours a day, that leaves 4 hours to hunt and eat. While a sleeping animal may seem to be prime prey, very few animals dare to approach a sleeping lion. They deliver their distinctive roar in the evening before a night’s hunting and again before getting up at dawn.

I have always liked lionesses. Female lions have always seemed like the best. They were really strong and took care of their babies and are beautiful.

- Brooke Shields

In 1980, at age 14, Shields was the youngest fashion model ever to appear on the cover of Vogue. Later that year, she appeared in print and TV ads for Calvin Klein jeans.

This lion quote talks about the mothering instincts of the lioness. She hides her cubs from other animals including her Pride until they're about 8 weeks. Lionesses work together to care for their young and fight off infanticidal lions, sometimes to the death. Asiatic females mate with multiple males to create confusion on paternity among the males so they’ll consider all the cubs their own. This is to prevent infanticide which is common among Lions. Lionesses begin training the Cubs to hunt at three months of age while they are still nursing.

The lion is a significant symbol in many cultures. In many folk stories told around the world, we use the lion to depict courage, strength, fairness, justice and leadership.

"Courage is poorly housed that dwells in numbers; the lion never counts the herd that are about him, nor weighs how many flocks he has to scatter."  - Aaron Hill #trvst #quotes #lion #biodiversity #gogreen #conservation #impact #wildlife #bethechange #wildlifeprotection #ecoconscious #sustainability

Lions prey on a large variety of animals ranging in size from rodents and baboons to buffalos and hippopotamuses. They usually hunt in groups, strategically causing chaos among herds of animals. The animals run off to safety and this allows the lions to catch the weakest and slowest of the herd. Lions help to remove old, sick and weak herbivores from the population.

Lion tamers exist to domesticate lions or at least try to. However, a circus or animal act isn't natural for a lion. This lion quote captures the true nature of the lion. All the training in the world cannot change a lion from a wild animal. There have been cases where a seemingly tamed lion attacked humans. Most animal advocacy groups state that animal attacks occur because of animal rage or frustration that arise due to unnatural living conditions. In 1966, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) signed the Animal Welfare Act into law and routinely inspects circuses, zoos and other animal handling organizations for violations.

"Several countries - among them Austria, Costa Rica, Denmark, Finland, India, Israel and Sweden - ban or severely restrict the use of wild animals in circuses. In Brazil, a movement to ban wild animals from circuses started after hungry lions managed to grab and devour a small boy."  - Peter Singer #trvst #quotes #costarica #india #animals #hungry #wild #lions #wildlife #nature #geology #dosomething

- Peter Singer


Singer is an Australian moral philosopher. He is the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton. He is also a Laureate Professor at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne. He published the book Animal Liberation: A New Ethics for Our Treatment of Animals (amazon) in 1975. Singer devotes much of his resources to social and political causes.

Lions for all their power are not immune to animal cruelty at the hands of humans. According to PETA, although organizations who keep exotic animals claim to use humane training methods, there's no way to verify what happens behind closed doors. The population trend for lions is currently stable but the IUCN Red List Status of the Lions says they are endangered. Lions are a major attraction at zoos, circuses and homes of certain influential people. Poaching lions to supply illegal animal markets puts lions in danger of extinction.

"In boxing, it is about the obsession of getting the most from yourself: wanting to dominate the world like a hungry young lion."  - Anthony Joshua #trvst #quotes #hungry #lion #hunger #majesticwildlife #makeadifference #socialimpact #food #wildlifeprotection #equalopportunity #thinkgreen

In boxing, it is about the obsession of getting the most from yourself: wanting to dominate the world like a hungry young lion.

- Anthony Joshua


Also known as AJ, Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua is a British professional boxer. He is a two-time unified heavyweight champion, having held the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO titles. He is also an Olympic gold medalist for representing Great Britain at the 2012 Olympics. In April of 2020, Joshua ranked as the world's second-best active heavyweight by The Ring magazine.

Lions are naturally dominant and stubbornly consistent in pursuing their intentions. They guard their territory and interests. An ousted lion will try to fight his way back into Pride.

"The one excellent thing that can be learned from a lion is that whatever a man intends doing should be done by him with a whole-hearted and strenuous effort."

- Chanakya

Chanakya was an ancient Indian teacher, philosopher, economist, jurist and royal advisor. He dedicated his life to the service of Chandragupta Maurya and his son, Bindusara of Maury's empire. He authored the Arthashastra; “The Science of Material Gain”. The book is a political treatise that guides the philosopher in running an empire. He died at age 92.

Chanakya's lion quote tells us that we can learn a lot from the lion. One lesson is how they approach risky situations with confidence and intensity. Whether it's hunting, roaring, or eating, lions put their energy into whatever they are doing.

Conclusion

In 2014, Fish and Wildlife Service director Dan Ashe warned that the African lion may be extinct by 2050. Many don’t realize that human-lion conflict is an ongoing threat to these animals. According to the National Geographic, retaliatory killing through carcass poisoning, poaching and habitat encroachment are dangers lions face from humans. We need concerted effort to protect lions from human activities that endanger their lives every day.
