A Vegetarian Lion Goes Viral
Many of the users tried to describe the reason behind the lion eating grass and said that the beast often does so to clean its intestines. “They consume grass and then barf it to purify intestine,” a user said. “All the classes of cats eat grass as a natural remedy. Adds fiber and bulk to their diet, helping them to pass worms and fur, bones, feather, etc, as they eat both edible and inedible parts of prey,” another tweet stated.
That’s true because experts say so. The raw meat that lions eat has an acidic impact and cause discomfort in digestion. The grass serves to refine their digestion system.
