Fact of the Day
Lionesses are attracted to male lions that have manes that are long and dark-colored. This preference would normally make such males more popular due to literal natural selection. In the case of the lion, this causes a problem. Male lions need to maintain a certain body temperature, as is typical mammal behavior. Long, dark locks of hair do more than just attract the ladies, they make the body too warm for healthy sperm production. With a lion's whole presence in the wild dependent on his being strong and tough, deformed sperm will not achieve this goal and will instead make for weak, feeble offspring with a low chance for survival. This vicious cycle will have to somehow overcome this issue in the future of the species' evolution.
