What a stunning specimen of a male lion. The perfect blend of majesty, grace and raw power. The male lion is the leader of the pride, but his main role in the group is to protect the females and cubs from other males. Generally, the male lions do not get involved in the hunting of prey….that is left to the females. (via 500px / A true King by bigcatphotos UK)
