  4. I'm not a child, but I learned something new here today, too. I didn't realize tigers are larger than lions. Even seeing them in the zoo, I always thought the king of the jungle was also the largest.

    My cats, although distant relatives of the lion, maintain the 20 hours a day of sleep. (Sure seems like it, anyway!)

    Happy weekend!
