Female Lions Remind Me Of African Women, And this is why....
Earlier today i was reading an interesting document about female lions and the more i read the more i related to them. I almost felt like i knew that family or i belonged to the Lion family.
Lionesses are known to be tough, strong, beautiful and like Tyra Banks would say, Fierce! Well in that very description, i believe it would fit an African Woman!And going by these few but main points, i believe you will agree with me when i say Female Lions are like African women.
Lionesses are the pride's primary hunters. They often work together to prey upon antelopes,zebra's,wildebeest and other large animals of the open grasslands.Many of these animals are faster than lions,so teamwork pays off. In the African culture Kitchen business is a woman's business!(LOL)
A cub may nurse from other females in the community as well as its mother.Well this point should not be taken Literary but think about it, your friends mother is as good as your mother. Remember when we were younger and you would misbehave then you friend's mum would punish you while your mum wasn't there?Like the Swahili saying that says " A child belongs to the community"
Males and Females fiercely defend against any outside lions that attempt to join their pride. Maybe in this case the family that preys together stays together! It is a well known fact that mothers purely and generally protect their family!
All said and done, Lionesses are beautiful, unique,hardworking, protective,intelligent and yes of course ..Fierce!!Now don't you think that description fits an African woman?
