Lions are natural hunters and they capture their prey by jumping on its back and biting it on the neck. Lions are very quick and strong, and they can bring down even some of the biggest animals in the wild. Lions also hunt together to feed on large packs of animals. One lion will scare the herd while the other lions capture the prey. If a lion is extremely hungry, it will also feed on even the smallest of animals.
