Contender 1: Lion
The lion, often referred to as the 'king of the jungle,' is a large, powerfully built cat known for its tawny coat and, in males, a magnificent mane. They are native to Africa and a small region in western India. Adult male lions can weigh up to 420 pounds, while females, who are primarily responsible for hunting, are slightly smaller. Lions are social animals and live in groups called prides, which are usually composed of related females, their cubs, and a small number of adult males.
Fun Fact: Lions are the most socially inclined of all wild felids, most of which remain quite solitary in nature.
Contender 2: Bison
The bison, also known as the American buffalo, is a massive, hump-shouldered beast known for its iconic place in the history and folklore of the American West. They are covered in a shaggy, dark brown winter coat, and have a lighter-weight, lighter brown summer coat. With their massive size, adult males can weigh up to 2,000 pounds, and both males and females have short, curved horns, which they use in fighting for status within the herd and for defense.
Fun Fact: Despite their massive size and seemingly lumbering movements, bison are remarkably agile and quick, capable of running up to 35 miles per hour and jumping high fences.
