Lion. Just the word sounds strong and regal. He is the undisputed king of the jungle. His roar strikes fear into the hearts of most of those around him.
He is magnificent! His mane is a thing of beauty. It begs to be touched, stroked, and petted. His expressive eyes tell of his happiness or his anger.
His scars tell of battles won long ago. Look at the face of this gorgeous cat and imagine what he has struggled through to become king.
He is so important that he was even given his own constellation and astrological sign.
Some of these images show a playful animal that you would want to cuddle. Others are terrifying in their reality.
