Lion (Male)

Panthera leo


Huge, lazy big cat also known as the African lion. This guy's pretty old, because I remember him being there when I was in high school, and I'm 4 years out of grad school now. I can tell he's of the dudely persuasion because of that glorious mane.


Grasslands of sub-Saharan Africa and parts of Asia.


His name is Jonathan and he lives at the Houston Zoo...with two females, it looks like.

Thank you! I'm looking forward to getting a better camera someday so I can shoot some more glamor shots of this hammy guy ;-)

wow still lovely!

Yes it is! The quality isn't so great because I shot it on my Android. It was cropped because the rest of the pic was just grass.
