I was surprised by just how short there lifespan is, I expected them to live for years and years, at least until 50 or 60. I do have one question and that is can a Lion, or mostly Lioness, sleep with a back leg in the air ? At lot of the time we see them sleeping and quite a few have one back leg up in the air, are they resting or can they sleep with it up there ?
