African lions currently range in east, south and central Africa. Male lions weigh between 330 and 550 pounds, while female lions weigh from 265 to 395 pounds. Lions have nine distinct vocalizations; the roar can be heard at a distance of five miles and is usually heard at sundown. The remaining sounds have not been interpreted but appear to have meaning within the pride.
