Big cats pics

Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania

Lions proclaim their territory by roaring and by scent marking. The lion's well-known roar is generally uttered in the evening before a night's hunting and again before getting up at dawn. Males also proclaim their presence by urinating on bushes, trees, or simply on the ground, leaving pungent scent markings in the process. Defecation and rubbing against bushes leave other scent markings.
