Lions do not eat snakes. According to National Geographic, the primary prey of lions include large mammals such as zebras, antelopes and wildebeest that live on the open grasslands.
Lions are the only cats to live in groups called prides. Each pride is led by a patriarchal male lion whose territory may include 100 square miles, although some prides contain more than one male lion. Female lions are the hunters of the pride. Lions use ambush tactics and teamwork in order to catch prey larger than themselves. Stealing kills from other predators is not uncommon among lions, who are known to intimidate hyenas and wild dogs.
