Female lions (lionesses) do 90% of the hunting.
The female lions, or lionesses, of a lion pride are responsible for about 90% of the overall hunting process. The males of the pride are in charge of patrolling the area and protecting the group. They do, however, take the largest portion of the spoils the females bring back. They exist not only on what they hunt, but also scavenged food from the hunting spoils of other animals.
