Product Description Lions are found in savannas, forests, mountains, deserts and rainforests. African lions are found in sub-Saharan Africa, while Asiatic lions live in the Gir forest in northwestern India. African lions feed mainly on gazelles, impalas and wildebeests, while lions in general will also eat birds, reptiles and rodents when larger prey is scarce or hard to capture. The lion?s scientific name is panther leo. Lions once had a more widespread range that included large parts of Africa, Asia and even Europe. They are no longer found in several countries, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iraq and Israel. Like all Safari Ltd products, this figurine has been individually hand painted, features quality construction from phthalate and lead-free materials, and includes an educational hangtag in 5 languages. Realistic, educational, and fun, this figurine is suitable for a range of interests, including collectors, enthusiasts, teachers, and kids. Admire it on a shelf, use it in the classroom, or simply enjoy playing with it. Lions have tawny coats, a black tuft on the tips of their tails, and large paws. Males have long manes that range from blond to black. Adult African lions weigh between 265 and 420 pounds and measure between 4.5 and 6.5 feet in body length.
