The lion is a mammal of the family Felidae and one of four “big cats” in the Genus Panthera. The lion is the second largest cat, after the tiger. The male lion, easily recognized by his mane, weighs between 330-500 lbs. In the wild, lions live for around 10-14 years, while in captivity they can live for 20 years. While once found throughout much of Africa, Asia and Europe, it is presently encountered in the wild only in Africa and in India.
