Prides, or groups of lions, have amazing social structures. The females do all the hunting, sharing the antelope, wildebeest, or buffalo they kill with the whole pride. Hunting is serious work with a low success rate. When an animal is felled, it is essential for the pride to gain all nutrients possible from the animal. This activity explores an adaptation in lions’ tongues that allows them to leave no waste behind. This is a companion activity for If My Mom Were A Platypus: Mammal Babies and their Mothers. The title is available at a discounted price for Title 1 schools on the First Book Marketplace.This book explores how 14 different mammal babies navigate the path from helpless infants to self-sufficient adults, and comes with a free downloadable Teacher’s Guide filled with activities just like this one.
