African lions have a wide range of habitats and can live almost anywhere. A real example of this statement is the lions of Namibia. Like the lion in this photograph, he adapts to a harsh terrain and desert climate. Lions that live in areas with higher humidity, such as Namibia, have darker fur. You see this in the African lion photograph, which stands at the edge of the Etosha salt pan.
Indeed, we know these beautiful lions for their ability to adapt to the desert with long legs and leaner bodies than other typical lions. Namibian lions can go longer without drinking water – 2 weeks. They rely on the moisture from their prey’s blood to stay hydrated and also have to search longer and broader for prey. As a result, they eat a wider variety of animals, including birds, small antelope, and even mice.
The African lion, Panthera Leo, is in the category vulnerable on the IUCN red list.
