There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Almost all photographs of Asiatic lions are of either wild lions in India, or captive lions descended from wild Indian lions. I have photographs of lions from Iran, and a video of a stuffed Pakistani lion: 

1) Photograph by Antoin Sevruguin in Iran, circa 1880: http://archive.asia.si.edu/iran-in-photo...atives.asphttp://collections.si.edu/search/results...cstype=all

2) Photograph by the National Museum of Ireland showing the skin of Shirea the Persian lioness that was brought to Dublin by King Edward VII in 1902, and kept in the Natural History Museum https://www.museum.ie/The-Collections/Do...an-Lioness

3) As stated by Nowell and Jackson, page 39 (http://carnivoractionplans1.free.fr/wildcats.pdf), it is thought that the last lion of what is now Pakistan was shot near Kot Diji in 1810, but this is disputed. Regardless, the lion was said by Kinnear to have occurred in the area of Bahawalpur (https://archive.org/stream/journalofbomb...Bahawalpur), and Bahawalpur has a zoo called "Sher Bagh" (Lion Garden) which is said to have the stuffed lion that was Pakistan's last, look at 6:1237, it is incorrectly called a 'tiger', but we can see that it is a stuffed lion:

About #492: Photoshop of a tiger turned into a lion... We see at the bottom of the left front limb some typical stripes of the tiger.
