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.

I just think it's logic that, being fed and without real exercise, they have an abundant mane. I remind me a captive lion in the "Tiergarten" Berlin zoo ( in the ancient East side of the city) which was similar to the lion you showed in the first video: He was displayed to be an Asiatic lion too. It didn't reflect at all the photos you saw before about the wild Asiatic lions and the animal's representations you had in mind.

True. It wasn't meant for either of you really... visitors were aimed at.

lot of people just assume that's how Barbarys looked like from those over-fed, selectively-bred, never-stressed abominations!

I tried to make a point as how different real, wild Barbary lions would have looked like by comparing it to a similarly raised Asiatic, who happens to vary similar genes & survived in similar harsh landscapes.

This post is better suited in this thread.


Good science is good observation.
