  1. A Lion Named "Christian" (
      "In 1969, two flamboyantly dressed, long-haired hippies named Anthony Bourke and John Rendall purchased a lion cub from London's upscale department store Harrods which, at the time, traded in exotic animals and brought him to live in their Chelsea furniture store in the heart of Swinging London. Christian lived in the store, aptly named Sophisticat, for five months. He played well with children, was litter-trained, and only ruined the store's furniture by accident. But even the most domesticated lion is still too wild for London, so Bourke and Rendall embarked on the long, arduous task of rehabilitating their oversized housecat into the wild." 1-01

  1. Lions (African Wildlife Foundation)
      Provides facts and a picture. "Most cat species live a fundamentally solitary existence, but the lion is an exception. It has developed a social system based on teamwork and a division of labor within the pride, and an extended but closed family unit centered around a group of related females." 1-01

  2. Lions (Kids' Planet)
      Includes a description and a drawing.
