The thick mane of the African lion protects their necks if they are in a fight with another animal.
African lions, like all carnivores, have a digestive tract that allows them to consume large quantities of meat in a short time.
Unlike other cats, lions are very social animals and live in groups, called prides, of around 30 lions.
Wildlife Rescue’s Vision is that humans come to see that we are members of a vast life community, that we experience the proper gratitude and respect for this community, and that we live in a more appropriate and compassionate manner in relation to the whole.
WRR was founded in 1977 in San Antonio, Texas. Since 2001 its primary base of operations has been located on 212 acres near Kendalia, Texas, a property which was purchased through the generosity of three of our supporters.
