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.
