Did You Know? A lioness becomes sexually receptive for two to four days about once every two years, provided she raises her cubs to weaning.
Mating between lions occurs about four times an hour over a period of one to four days. The female may turn her attention to one of the other
pride males when the first one is worn out, so it's not uncommon for more than one male to mate with a female while she is sexually receptive.
