The African lion (Panthera Leo) is one of the five big cats in the genus Panthera including, tiger, jaguar, leopard, and the snow leopard. The lion is the top predator of the African Savannah, with a top speed of approximately 50 miles (80 km) per hour, it hunts down prey animals such as antelopes, zebras, wildebeests, and cape buffaloes. Averaging 350 to 450 lbs in weight, with a few exceptions exceeding 600 lb, it measures 9 to 10 ft in length from nose to tail, and stands at 4 ft at the shoulders, the lion is the second largest living cat after the tiger. Although the anatomy of lions and tigers are very similar, from a technical standpoint, they have slightly different body proportions.
