Lions -Animal Wisdom

I recently spent several hours in the dentist chair. While that is never a pleasant thing, I learned some fascinating information. A TV above my head ran a continuous loop of Trivia Facts. Did you know that Lobsters have green blood?? Neither did I.

But, the one trivia fact that captured my attention was this: Did you know that the male lion sleeps an average of 18 to 20 hours a day?

That means he is only active between 4 to 6 hours in a twenty-four hour time period.

And, in that 4 to 6 hours per day, he managed to earn the title of King of the Jungle. While I mulled that over, it occurred to me. He is the ultimate example of time management. He obviously wastes not one minute of his awake time.

The female lion only sleeps between 15 and 18 hours per day because it is her job to take care of the cubs.

I’ve always had an affinity to lions. I am a Leo sun sign, but this bit of information revealed while in the dentist chair changed my entire perspective of these regal animals.
