Photos oft the lion (Panthera leo) and the Barbary lion (Panthera leo leo) from South Africa.The Barbary lion - he had a particularly large mane - lived in North Africa (Atlas Mountains) and has been extinct in the wild since 1910. Nevertheless, however, there were still a few specimens of the animals after that, albeit not in freedom, in zoos and with private individuals. To this day, breeding has been successful, but the Barbary lions, which can still be found in a few places (zoos, breeding centres) are no longer pureblood.
