Why do lions roar?
Now if you had asked "Why does a hummingbird hum" then we'd say "becuase it doesn't know the words", but to get the answer to your question we had to find a young scientist in Mr. Silmser's class to do some research. Carolyn Clarke gave us this answer along with a picture of a lion roaring.
Lions roar because they are telling other lions to back off and stay out of their territory. Most lions live in Africa or in zoos. Lions are also meat-eaters and usually eat large prey - zebra and different kinds of antelope, buffalo, and warthogs. But they will also eat fish, turtles, really anything they can catch.
