As you can see from the picture provided above this post is just that!  A whole blog about the movie “The Lion King”.

This movie is a GREAT movie.  For those of us that have not seen this magnificent work of art; I really feel bad for you, because you were deprived of a childhood.  With that being said, I will give those individuals (that have not seen the Disney movie) a quick rundown of the movie.

This movie shows the life of Simba, heir to throne, after his father (Mufasa) was killed by Mufasa’s brother (Scar).  Simba is then tricked to believe that he was the cause of his fathers’ death; in order for Scar, his uncle, to take the place of King of the Pride Lands.  Simba flees and grows through life learning who he is by the help of his friends: Nala, Rafiki, Timon and Pumbaa.  After Simba, goes through an inner battle, he decides to go back home and battle his Uncle Scar for his place as Rightful King.

I am a hard critique but this movie is definitely a 10 out of 10.  Did I forget to mention that the music in this music will keep you dancing? “Well..they always say, “Hakuna Matata”…slimy yet satisfying”.

LION JARGON

Have you ever spoke to someone else that maybe pronounced something differently?  Or even used a different word for a commonly used word?  For example: some Americans prefer “soda” over “pop”, in the United States Marine Corps a “head” is merely what others call a “bathroom” and for our country folk a “behind” is your “booty”.  All of this has been said to get to the point that lions also have a “Jargon”.  This blog will be about lions’ jargon compared to humans and what each body part function is.

Yes, we (humans) have hands but lions have paws.  The human hand is used to grab things, write, eat as well as a lot of other functions.  Like a hand, lions have a paw.  A lions’ paw is used for stealth like movement for hunting and holds the beautiful animals  body weight all day.

Yes, we have hair but lions have manes.  Hair helps insulate body temperature, protects skin from sun damage and protects hot spots from blistering.  A mane has multiple major purposes:  to look bigger than they (male lion) actually is, to attract female lions for reproduction and to protect the neck from fatal bites; during battle.

Now you are caught up on a little “Lion Jargon”.

DID YOU KNOW?

Though many of us have heard or maybe even seen a lion before; do you know anything about the…?  On this post, we will learn a many amazing facts about “The King of the Jungle”…RAWR!!!

Did you know…

  • Lions are the second largest big cat on Earth right behind tigers?

So, that means that, out of 10 of the big cats in the world; the lion beats 8 in size.

  • Male lions are easy to recognize due to their complex manes; and males with darker manes are more likely to attract female lions (lionesses)?

I guess that old saying is true.  Well, at least for lions “The darker the berry, the sweeter the juice” (just a joke).

  • When lions breed with tigers they become hybrids known as tigons or ligers?  When a lion and leopard are bred they become leopons?  Or when a lion and jaguar are paired together; they become hybrids known as jaglions?

Obviously, scientist have found the lion species something that is worthy for experimenting.  All of these different creations, from a lion, are unique in their own ways and serve a pace in the circle of life.
