First, take a look at the picture and try to guess the meaning of the idiom 'the lion's share.'
The lion's share: The largest part (or share) of something.
It's important to notice that we are taking about the biggest part of something. We are not just saying that one thing is bigger than something else. We are describing something that has been divided up in a way that someone is getting the biggest part of that thing.
So in this picture, we have a lion and we have a mouse. To say that the lion has the lion's share, we must understand that both of those pieces of meat came from the same, larger piece of meat before it was divided.
