Description: African Lions have been admired throughout history for as symbols of courage and strength. These iconic animals have powerful bodies in the cat family, they’re second in size only to tigers and roars that can be heard from five miles away. An adult lion’s coat is yellow-gold, and juveniles have some light spots that disappear with age. Only male lions typically boast manes, the impressive fringe of long hair that encircles their heads.
