How do lions show love
Must Love Lions (Shifter Date, #1) by Alma BlackAlexis Parrish is very single. Sassy and smart, shes great at her job as a journalist, but its never given her the time to find the right man--specifically, a human. So when she gets assigned to interview Max, a lion shifter, about the new dating app hes created, she cant believe her intense attraction to him. After all, humans and shifters dont date.
Max is used to causing trouble. He broke tradition by creating the dating app, Shifter, which humans and shifters alike can use to answer the call of the wild.
When Max challenges Alexis to give him a chance, she cant say no. A human like her has no business with this handsome alpha lion, but she cant resist his magnetism. Their chemistry is primal, their connection positively animalistic. After all, once you go shifter, you never go back.
But when a rogue shifter group against interspecies dating targets Alexis, Max will stop at nothing to protect her. Its more than his pride on the line; its his mate.
Warning: If sassy, sexy, and carnal reads arent your thing, this book isnt for you. It contains lots of dirty sex, violence, and witty banter.

Why Lions Nuzzle
Lionesses use licking to strengthen social bonds. PLOS ONE Lions nuzzle their pride members not just to look cute, but also to strengthen social bonds, according to a new study of this adorable behavior. In the study, published Sept. He saw they used head rubbing and licking to reinforce bonds with pride members. This behavior is interesting, because other animals — even similar predatory, group-living mammals like cheetahs — bond using different social interactions. For example, the spotted hyena exposes its genitals when it meets other members in its group. While the scientists watched, they saw that cuddles were regularly exchanged within the observed group, but males and females seemed to prefer different methods for showing their affection.
A lioness on her own, may go into false oestrus if she has cubs and if a new male arrives on the scene. She does this to protect her cubs, by diverting his interest away from potentially killing the cubs to mating with her. The male lions seldom hang around with the pride to.

Craig Packer was behind the wheel when we came across the massive cat slumped in the shade beneath a spiny tree. It was a dark-maned male, elaborately sprawled, as if it had fallen from a great height.
The study, conducted by a team of researchers in Japan in Tonky Zoological Park, examined the nuzzling and licking habits of African lions in captivity. Their results were strange, but not surprising. The paper hypothesized that lions could very well use nuzzling and licking as a form of tension reduction, and in order express a social rank of some sort. Both these theories were not supported by their finding, but instead, the only supported hypothesis was that lions use what seem to be signs of affection in order to maintain or establish social bonds. Female lions lick female lions, females rub their heads against males, and males rub their heads against other males. Lions use licking and nuzzling as a way to strengthen social bonds, which is to say, male lions will nuzzle other male lions in order to make sure that when another coalition of lions comes along, the social bond is intact enough for all lions to hold their ranks instead of scurrying off and letting the rest of the group get killed. Nuzzling, as a result, may not be a direct sign of affection, though our anthropomorphizing tendencies may long for this to be the case because how cute would it be if lions, deep down, really were just like people?
Life is tough, if you're a lion. Male lions are always at risk of being killed by groups of rival males, or, if they're lucky, exiled from their prides. Females, meanwhile, always face the possibility of having their cubs killed when a new male coalition takes over their group. A pride, which is the core social grouping of lion life, is made of a group of anywhere from two to twenty related females and their offspring, along with a coalition of one to nine males. While the males are usually related to each other, they're unrelated to the females. The females give birth at the same time and the cubs are nursed communally.
