African Lion

This is Dakota, our male African lion. He came to Potter Park Zoo from Sedgwick County Zoo in 2011.

Did you know?

Lions are very social animals that live in prides of 4 and 37 cats. At the core of the pride are 4 to 12 related adult females, their young, and 1-6 adult males.  Lions spend over 80 percent of their time conserving energy, which is important for large animals to survive where food may be difficult to get. That adds up to your average lion spending up to 20 hours a day resting or sleeping!
