In Real Life
The East African lion (Panthera leo nubica) is a lion population in East Africa. In this part of Africa, lions occur in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. However, they are regionally extinct in Djibouti, Egypt, and Eritrea. Lion populations in East African range countries declined since the turn of the century. Formerly, the East African lion was recognized as several distinct subspecies with the scientific names, such as Panthera leo massaica, P. l. hollisteri, and P. l. nyanzae. They were known as Masai lion, Somali lion, Abyssinian lion and Uganda lion, depending on the area where individuals had been captured for zoological collections. In 2016, IUCN Red List assessors had subsumed all African lion populations to Panthera leo leo. The subspecific status of lions in the Horn of Africa has not yet been fully resolved.
Lions usually hunt at night. Their prey includes antelopes, buffaloes, zebras, young elephants, rhinos, hippos, wild hogs, crocodiles and giraffes. But they also sometimes eat smaller prey like mice, birds, hares, lizards, and tortoises.
