Chester Zoo have three Asiatic Lions, all wonderful characters! Iblis, the remarkably handsome male lion, is three years old. He’s typically very active and playful. The lionesses, one of which shown her, either Kiburi and Kumari, are four years old and arrived from Rotterdam Zoo in September 2011.
Asiatic Lions differ subtly in a number of ways from their African counterparts. They are smaller and have a distinctive fold of skin that runs along the belly. Asiatic Lions also have shorter, shaggier manes, longer tassels of hair on the end of their tails and longer tufts of hair on their elbows.
Thanks for my clicks and comments for my squirell, back to the Sony for this one, hope you like her...
