Lion in Tree, Zambezi River, Zambia

A female lion claims her spot in a tree near the Zambezi River in Zambia. Female lions are the primary hunters in each family group, or pride. They often work together to prey upon antelopes, zebras, wildebeests, and other large animals of the open grasslands. Many of these animals are faster than lions, so teamwork pays off.

赞比亚赞比西河伴的一棵树上,一只雌性的狮子在宣示自己的地盘。雌狮子们是各个狮子家族引以为傲的主要猎手。它们经常在开阔的草原上合作猎捕羚羊、斑马、角马或其它大型动物。这些动物大都跑得比狮子快,所以需要团队合作才能取得胜利。
