This animal has two genders: the male Lion, and the female Lioness. They are identical in all aspects except for appearance, and that when breeding Lions, you must breed a Lion with a Lioness.
Lions and Lionesses are generally not hostile to the player. However, if you attack an adult Lion or Lioness, it is sure to fight back. It will also attack you if you attack any nearby cubs.
A lion may occasionally chase other animals, but unlike with crocodiles, it does not try to kill them.
Lions can be fed with raw fish () to let them mate. If a fed lion and a fed lioness are close to each other, they will mate and a new baby lion will spawn. Baby lions grow to maturity after some time (approximately 20 minutes).
- Lions and Lionesses were added from Mevans' previous mod, the Lion King mod. They were given new models and textures in Public Beta 22.
- The Morwaith have a god called the Great Lion and every new tribe warrior must kill a lion to prove his strength.
