The Lion King Essay
The movie, The Lion King, explains an important part of the life of every organism. This is
called the circle of life. The circle of life is broken down into four simple steps. The first being the
birth of an organism. This is done through reproduction, which is repeated later in the cycle.
The next step is growth, and this occurs throughout the organism's earlier life. Growth is described
as how the organism evolves into that of its parents. When the organism is old enough, it will find
a mate and have an offspring with that organism of the same species. This step is titled
reproduction. The next and final step to this cycle, is the death of the organism. When the parent
(the organism described in this in particular situation) dies, the offspring will take its place, and the
circle of life is continued once more. Another thing that the movie includes is predator/prey
relationships. The hyenas love to eat small animals like Timon the mongoose, so they go after
him. Hyenas arent going to just run out of their habitat though, so Timon enters their territory
and eventually comes close to getting eatin by the hyenas.
The Lion King also shows variations of certain species (in this example, we will use two).
The first species is the main focus in the movie; the lion. The male lion has a large mane
surrounding its head. The female, on the other hand, has no mane at all. This might be because
of how the male lion hunts the food for its family, and it needs a mane to scare other animals.
The effects of adaptation have rubbed off on the male lion. Natural selection may have a part in
this as well. Another variation of the lions where their characteristics. Mufasa was the strong and
mighty lion where Scar was the brains of the family and was more nimble. The other species that
will be discussed is the hyenas. They had their own characteristics (Ed was the dumb one,
Shenzi was the one who would always be serious, and Banzai was the one who always wanted the
job done). Another variation would be that each hyena had their own sence of amusement. Ed
would laugh at everything, which amused him, Banzai was ammused with food and so was
Shenzi. As an extra bit, I think i relate to Simba the most, because I take on my family pride,
and stick to it like Simba does.
