I came across this thing on the internet about how size doesn’t matter because the lion is the king of the jungle and not an elephant of something. I really want to know who named lions the king of the jungle. I mean yes they are an apex predator and they can kill you, but so can a lot of other animals.
Just to clarify, when I say lion, I mean the male lions. The ones with the manes. Lionesses are amazing creatures that should be recognised as such. But nope, it’s all about the bloody king of the jungle. I mean correct me if I am wrong, but aren’t the lionesses the ones who do the hunting/providing while the stupid male lion just sits there looking pretty? Yet the male gets first pick at the kill/food. Lionesses are also capable of protecting the pride, though the males do that too sometimes. The males mostly provide protection from other males trying to enter the pride. It’s a display of who’s boss, an ego related thing. So typically male isn’t it? Most have been a man that first call a male lion king of the jungle. Damn men.
