We have always been taught the venerable the Lion and other Big Cats were the carnivore predators to be aware whenever we wanted to go for a trek in the jungle.
It seems the Lion is the hunted. I don’t mean by the poachers they are afraid by the prey they use to hunt for. The proportion of the predator’s cats to the prey in their natural habitat has evolved into a new law of nature. They had less space to reproduce for new offspring’s since the protected areas were overcrowded with other herbivore animals.
