8. Ethiopian Lion
In 2012, a beautiful image of a midnight-black lion went viral, causing some people to question whether black lions really exist. While there have been rumours around the world of black lions, there have been no documented sightings of a completely black lion. These lions would be REALLY good at hunting at night!!
7. Barbary Lion
The Barbary lion is also called the Atlas lion, and the Nubian lion. It dwelled in the mountains and deserts of northern Africa, from Egypt to Morocco but is now considered extinct in the wild. Barbary lions grew up to seven feet long and weighed up to 500 pounds, and were the largest lion subspecies..
6. Addis Ababa Lion
In 2012, a population of genetically distinct lions was identified at the Addis Ababa Zoo in Ethiopia. The finding came after the zoo requested help from researchers in Leipzig in proving the lions are unique not only in appearance, but also when it comes to their DNA..
5. Asiatic Lion
Panthera leo persica, or the Asiatic lion, is one of the few lion species that exist outside of sub-Saharan Africa. This small population dwells in Gujarat, India in the Gir Forest, a former royal hunting ground turned big cat reserve.
4. White Lion
The white lion is not actually a species of lion; and, contrary to popular belief, they’re not albinos. Their strikingly beautiful color, which ranges from near-blonde to white, results from a rare recessive genetic mutation known as ‘leucism.’
3. Lion Hybrids
So for those of you who guessed, here is the answer!! A liger results from a male lion breeding with a tigress. A tigon is the product of interbreeding between a male tiger and a lioness. At a Russian zoo in 2012, a female liger mated with a male lion and gave birth to a liliger. Are you confused yet?
2. West African Lion
The West African lion, Panthera leo leo, has a lighter build, longer legs, and a thinner mane than other lions throughout Africa and is thought to be more genetically similar to the Barbary and Asiatic lions than the sub-Saharan species.
1. East African Lion
Panthera leo nubica, also called the East African lion or the Masai lion, is a subpopulation inhabiting parts of Southern and East Africa, including Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia, Uganda, South Sudan, Mozambique, and Tanzania.
