The king of the big cats, the African lion is actually only the second largest cat in the world after the Siberian tiger. Lions live mostly in sub-Saharan Africa in grasslands and savannah regions. A sub-species is also found in northwestern India. Lions live in a pride of up to 30 animals and mark their territory, which can be up to 100 square miles in size. Essentially, these cats are predators and will attack humans if given the chance. As an example, Tanzania reported 593 deaths from lion attacks from 1990 to 2004.
