Lions live for 10-15 years in the wild, but under the protection of zoos and facilities, their lifespan increases to twenty years. Males are obviously known for their mane, which is a result of testosterone. Females (who do most of the hunting, by the way) are attracted to males with the thickest and darkest coats. This is perhaps one of the reasons that Scar was able to rule the animal kingdom while Simba was away.
