Animals - Lion 5 by MoonsongStock Animals - Lion 5 by MoonsongStock
Photo taken by *EvilInstinct

African lion, Toronto Zoo, Ontario. This is actually a neutered male lion, not a lioness... but I don't think that anyone will notice the difference should you choose to use this as reference for an actual lioness instead. ;)

PLEASE READ AND ADHERE TO THE RULES IN MY JOURNAL BEFORE USING THIS IMAGE.

I somehow had a feeling this was a male, even before I read the description. He just looks so manly.
So, if you neuter a lion, he doesn't grow a mane...? o-0

Amazing. You can see the thickness of a male lion in him, even without the mane.. What an amazing shot!

Did they say why he was neutered though?

Heh heh, I was just there. Your shots have them much more active, probably doesn't help that I was restricted to visiting mid day on a hot day. . . and I suck at using my camera.

Funny,
I though it was a weird lioness with "male shapes". Didn't know testosterone regulates mane growth in lions.
Thanks for sharing !

MoonsongWolf Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2010
Testosterone regulates mane growth in lions, so they usually lose their mane if you neuter them. There are also female lions that grow manes, but they are very rare. I've never seen one personally.

I would have never known that this was a male lion had the keeper not told me! :lol:
