    They live primarily in large plains, but can also live in mostly all habitats other than the tropical rain forests and deserts. These lions are predatory carnivores and typical lions eat birds, fish, and eggs, and will often kill prey much bigger than themselves. They can have anywhere from 2 to 40 lions in a pride, and a male usually leads them. This animal is listed as endangered, and there is less than 200 lions left in the Gir Forest reserve of India.
