Kalahari Brute - The black-maned lions of the Kalahari desert are to me the most impressive and beautiful specimens of their kind. This male was coming for a drink, but the stare was as menacing as if I was the intended prey.
The Lion II - Last addition to my " Wildlife as Art " series. Original image taken in the Savute Marshlands in Chobe National Bark, Botswana. Join our 2014 photo safari at <a href=" http://www.southcapeimages.com/Botswana_Explorer.html" target=">” Botswana Explorer “ </a>
The King is On The Move - The most striking morphological character, which is always seen in Asiatic lions, but rarely in African lions, is a longitudinal fold of skin running along its belly. Asiatic lions are slightly smaller than African lions. Adult males weigh 160 to 190 kg.
