African Lion

/African Lion

Lions are big cats found in Africa and Asia.  The characteristic large mane of the male is unique in the cat family. Their coats are tawny to blend in with their surroundings.

We have African lions at the zoo, as opposed to the Asian subspecies of lion. Asian lions are smaller with thinner manes in males, and have a belly crease.
