Answer
The lion (Panthera leo) is one of the five big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. With some males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight, it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger. Wild lions currently exist in sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia (where an endangered remnant population resides in 'Gir Forest National Park', Gujarat, India), while other types of lions have disappeared from North Africa and Southwest Asia in historic times.
