Lions will eat almost anything when they are hungry. Usually they hunt for medium- to large-hoofed animals, such as Impala's, Wildebeest, Kudu to Buffalo. Giraffe have known also being attacked by lions,
even though the lion sincerely respect their savage kick. They hunt, in the main, at night. Lions drink regularly when water is available, but are capable of going without water for long periods in dessert and arid areas.
