ROARING BARBARY LION.

The magnificent Barbary lion is extinct in the wild. Formerly roaming the deserts and hills of Tunisia and Morocco, less than 400 Barbary lions still exist in captivity. Most of them are in Africa, believed to be descended from the collection once held by the King of Morocco, but a few exist on game farms and zoos of North America.

The Barbary lion is distinguished from regular African lions by its darker and fuller mane which also extends half way down its back and across its belly. It was a special privilege to photograph this extremely rare animal at Animals of Montana.
