Happy World Lion Day 2013! Lions can reach speeds of up to 81 kph (50 mph) but only in short bursts because of a lack of stamina.

Hi Steph! Beautiful portrait!
Please can you add the scientific name so that we can take this off of the "unknown" list & add a link (wikipedia etc) to the references. Because we have a global user base & sometimes many different common names for the same species, the system will continue to show a spotting as unidentified until the scientific name has been completed.

Aldo, I wouldn't let me mark the exact coordinates. For some reason it marked it as Kalimantan, but it wasn't there.

I'm from Indonesia, as long as I know, there is no lion in Kalimantan. Are you sure this picture taken in Kalimantan?
