Unusual Facts About Lions - as part of the pets & animals series by GeoBeats.

Here are 5 uncommon facts about lions.

Often thought of as "the kings of the jungle," lions are actually more at home out on the grassy savannas.

Lions have a small claw partway up their front legs called a "dewclaw," which they sometimes use to pick at their teeth.

A group, or "pride," of lions has many related females in it, but usually less than four males.

When lions greet each other, they will rub their bodies together forcefully to exchange scents, much like house-cats do.

Some male lions will break away from a pride and live alone, hunting and scavenging as they can.
