Lions inhabit open savannahs (open grassland/praire) with very little vegetation to act as cover and camoflage. Consequentially, they have evolved an efficient social organization and method of hunting. This eliminates the need to travel great distances for food. Lions generally travel only 5 miles (8 km) and use only two to three hours a day to search for and capture food. They spend the remaining hours loafing and dozing.
