The Lion has mistakenly been called the 'King of the Jungle'. This is not at all true, due to the fact that the lion lives, not in the jungle, but on the plains of Africa. Lions have been wiped out in Northern Africa, and in Southern Africa, outside the Kruger Park.
The male Lion is renowned for its beautiful mane. The adult male is a rather lazy animal, spending most of its time sleeping. Although the lioness does most of the hunting, often working in packs, it is the male that always eats first, the lionesses come next and the cubs last.
The lion cub, unlike our domestic kitten, can see from birth.
Others in this series include the Jaguar, Snow Leopard, Tiger, White Tiger and Panther. The Panther cannot be worked on anything finer than 14-count due to the fact that three strands are necessary to give the desired shading.
