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.

Do you think this is the same lion?

The caption said "A very buff lion from the Doco Superpride"
Mane looks to be slightly darker than the others, but its hard to tell. Facial features seem similar though.

One more side shot where the mane seems lighter than the first pic

Tough to tell.

Big lion, either way

Looking at both images, I'm not sure they are the same lion. The images I posted look to be two different ones, more of a belly flap on the first one which matches the other lion in question.
What do you guys think?

The lions you posted don't look to be the same, but its hard to tell, the best way of telling is getting a face picture and comparing whisker spots.

The scars on their back legs also seem to be different. Thanks for sharing though.

Big size difference in male and female! Different males, believe one is mopogo.

 


Those two males look indeed like some very big specimens. Do you know which video the pic at the top is from? it´s definitely from Rob the Ranger wildlife videos at youtube according to the watermark.

What a mean looking predator. One of the best photos I´ve seen ever, when it comes to looks that intimidate. I´m pretty sure I have the respective documentary. If I remember well, then it´s a male from the Ngorongoro, which looked massive in the documentary.

There we have it again. Lions just seem to make an impression of being quite tall. Strangely enough the tables with the measurements we have about different lion populations show no significant difference between indian (sundarbans excluded) and amur tigers. Before I found forums like this here, I thought amur tigers and lions are about the same shoulder height and bengal tigers are shorter at the shoulder, which I based on photos I´ve seen. I guess numbers don´t lie but photos do (mostly).
Though on a photo, this male looks impressive nevertheless.

Amazing picture.
It depicts perfectly the separation between the frontal arm muscles and the shoulder muscles.
Shoulder muscles, that on any other big cat are pretty much non existent.The reason why i personally prefer a male lion in a confrontation, he is build like a ''brute''.

Yes, numbers say that lions and tigers are of the same height (lions triffle taller), but for me it´s difficult to accept that. I personally would say that lions are obviously taller...but I respect the numbers. Optical illusion (mane, more upright posture, shorter body) is certainly a factor.

BTW as I noticed, some lions are incredibly tall (and - at first sight - as impressive as big amur tigers), but those lions are also somewhat lean...so in fact not that heavy. On the other hand I have seen stocky lions (pitbull-like creatures), but those lions were quite short. Certainly there are lions who are tall and also massive (probably the case of 250+kg lion Aslan), but I personally haven´t seen a lion like that...yet...
