Mufasa

He is wise and all seeing, just as I hope that you remember your father.

Mufasa is the largest lion in the pride.

Strong, brave and wise, Mufasa is a true leader amongst the pride and his courage comes from a great, calm certainty about who he is and how he fits into the great Circle of Life.

"I'm only brave when I have to be." —Mufasa to Simba, about bravery.

Here are some lion facts (is it just me, or does this sound like an oxymoron).

When a new male becomes part of the pride it is not unusual for him to kill all the cubs, ensuring that all future cubs will have his genes.

A male's loud roar, usually heard after sunset, can carry for as far as five miles (eight kilometers). The roar warns off intruders and helps round up stray members of the pride.

Lions are like teenagers and can remain inactive for up to 20 hours each day. But they get a second wind at night … they wait until the coolest, darkest times to hunt (and hit the bars).

Lions can run at a top speed of 36 miles (58 kilometers) an hour, but not for long. But who says they have to … let’s face it, can you run faster than 36 miles per hour.
