Since when is the lion the king and why?
Much like kings, lions are at the top of their food chain, lazy, and unconcerned with how they're viewed by those they depend upon for sustenance.
it is always said like that. i think that's because the lion is powerful.
I think it's because a lion represent power , control , prestige , honor , and respect .You need those things to be a good king or leader .
When he does nothing other then mate and fight others males. the lioness do everything else. Male lion=laziest big cat there is
