Lion

The game ‘Sleeping Lions’ is pretty named. Lions spend as much as 20 hours resting every day, so you’re likely to see them kipping rather than hunting for dinner. Unfortunately, your chances of seeing a lion are getting slimmer every day, as their population is dwindling. However, they’re easier to spot, since they live in prides, so not all hope is lost!
