The lion (Panthera leo) is one of the four big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae
Lions are big and are titled, "kings of the desert". They don't prove this much during the day though, with only limiting their activities to just laying down all day, resting. With all this resting during the day a person could get curious and wonder how or even when do these big intimidating creatures use all this spare energy.
Lions are night animals who like to hunt prey at night. They smell your odor at very long distances, and thus it is very risky to wander near deserts at night.
Being more dangerous than wolves it is advised not to face one head to head, but in the event that you choose to it is recommended to use an iron weapon, as other weapons will not endure as you keep dealing blows at this ferocious animal, and to have some raw meat in your backpack to throw at it in case you're losing the combat.
