The lion is the largest cat in Africa. The native habitat of the lion is the wide savannah grass in Southern Africa. The lion spends over 20 hours a day resting, usually in the shade of trees or rocks. Lions are very athletic cats, and can jump very high. They are also terrific climbers. They live around mostly umbrella thorn acacia trees, in the savannah, and likes large amounts of rocks.
