Average Life Span of a Lion

The average life span of a lion is not that long. A lion’s lifespan mostly depends on its habitat. The average lifespan of a lion ranges between 14 to 15 years. While enclosed, a lion can live between 15 to 20 years as it does not face many challenges, and the lifespan of lions in the wild ranges from 10 to 14 years. This is because in most cases it is faced with many challenges, it has to hunt, as well as injuries sustained from continual fighting with rival males to a great extent reduce their life span

Male lions are normally larger than females and have a unique mane of hair around their heads.

The Lions typically inhabit savanna and grassland, though they may also live in bush and forest. The Lions mainly sleep during the day; and are active primarily at night, and sometimes at sunset

It has also been discovered that male lions live for only 10 years in the wild while female lions live longer. This is mostly because the male lions in the wild fight with other lions and other animals to protect their clan.

The Lions of different species living in different areas do not have any big differences in life span. The life span of lions even in different geographical locations is roughly similar.
