Lions While it’s pretty stressful being a young lion—constant battles for supremacy, insatiable lionesses—in general, mature male lions are loafers. Lionesses and hyenas do most of the actual killing; even the big dark manes are a con. Far from being an indicator of virility, they are the leonine version of the hair that sprouts from the ears and nostrils of middle-aged men. Worse still, a lazy old lion is much more likely to turn man-eater. Slow, weak and always hanging around, we are easy prey: the lion’s equivalent of a night in watching telly with beer and a pizza.
