Native to Africa and South-Eastern Asia, lions are among the most fearsome of the big-cat predators. Over the last century, poaching has thinned out much of the lion population in the wild. However, thanks to coordinated conservation efforts between local governments and non-profit organizations, lions are once again beginning to thrive in the wild and on wildlife preserves.
Lions typically live in groups called a pride. An average pride typically consists of less than 10 lions, but some prides of up to 30 individuals have been seen in the wild. The female lioness in this video has been separated from her pride for a few days now and is now eager to see her family again.
