Who eats first in lion and tiger groups?

Who eats first in lion and tiger groups?


When several lions kill their prey, the main male eats first. Usually the females hunt and kill their prey and the male starts eating.


When several tigers kill their prey, the females and cubs eat first. Tigers rarely argue or fight over a kill and simply wait their turn.
