The African lion is a tertiary consumer that lives in the Savannah in the east of Africa.
The lion is a tertiary consumer which means that it feeds on both primary and secondary consumers.
The African lion can weight about 130 - 225 kg. Adult lions can run about 50 mph(miles per hour) but cubs can run
from 10 mph to about 15mph. Lions are the only wild cats to live in groups called prides.
Lions are one of the most skilled hunters in the Savannah. They use strategy's to find
and hunt their prays such as gazelles and antelopes.

Consumers: consumers are animals that feed on order animals or producers.

Primary consumers: primary consumers are organisms that feed on only grass and plants.
They are also know as herbivores, for example the antelope.

A way i can improve on my poster is by adding decomposers and draw arows showing the feed relations between
all the animals. WHen i first made my poster i had a spelling mistake so i had to re-print the title, cut it out and then
paste it on the poster. I was happy that my arows showing the feeding relations was understandable and easy to read.



Environment: An environment is a place that has interaction between living and non-living factors.
Depending on the non-living condition the adaptation will vary for example if there is
not much water the animals will have to consever enery or migrate to a place with mor
water.

Non-living conditions
Adaptation
A lot of light which means it gets really hot.
average summer temperature 20˚ - 30˚.
Average winter temperature 20˚ - 25˚
Not move as much as they would to keep a cold body temperature.

Use the shade of trees to cool down body heat.
In the night it gets really
cold.
Flatten fear to trap the heat in.




Symbioses relationships:

commensalism: is when one animal benefits and the other is not affected



mutualism: is when both animals benefits from each other

When lions spot volutes circling in the sky they know there is a kill. Also when lions are done
with the hind caters of there kill the vaulters can eat the rest.

Parasitism: Is when one organism lives in a host animal (mostly mammals)

Some times fly's will lay there larva on lions when the lions sleep then the larva will live in the
lion until they are ready to leave.
