How long to lions live?

Breeding and Life span

Lions are polygamous (more than one mate) and breed every two years in the wild; captive lions breed every year. After a gestation period of about 110 days, two or three cubs are born with thick, spotted coats. Lions in captivity live 25 years or more; in the wild they seldom live more than 10 years, because they are often injured by their prey or by other lions.
