The big guy, Leo

The lion (Panthera leo) isn’t the largest cat (tigers are larger), but he has probably made the deepest impression on humans, partly because the male’s large mane does give it a “kingly” look. Lions once ranged over not only Africa but also Europe and Asia, but today they are found only in Africa and a small section of India. The lion is the only social cat, living in small groups called prides that are composed mostly of related females and one dominant male.
