Male Lion With a Blue Eye – The life of a male lion is hard right from the get go. As a cub they are completely defenseless thus have to avoid everything from snakes to other lions, anything larger than themselves really.

The mortality rate of lions in the wild is around 50%, and once they reach sub-adulthood they are ousted from the pride by their fathers, or by other dominant male lions seeking to take over control of the pride.

Description

The life of a male lion is hard right from the get go. As a cub they are completely defenseless thus have to avoid everything from snakes to other lions, anything larger than themselves really. The mortality rate of lions in the wild is around 50%, and once they reach sub-adulthood they are ousted from the pride by their fathers, or by other dominant male lions seeking to take over control of the pride.

The struggle does not get any easier from here though, a lack of hunting skills means that they have now need to avoid rival predators, as well as learn to take their own prey. Scars such as this male lions right eye are fairly commonplace, indications of the many hardships they have faced getting to the point of dominance.
