Big cats from the world, a world of big cats

Photos of Barbary Lions

the Barbary Lion, sometimes named Atlas lion or Nubian lion, Panthera leo leo, is a sub-species of African lions which lived in the Atlas mountains (Morocco, Algeria, mainly). It is now totally extinct out of some zoos. But it seems that it was a great animal with a truly impressive look.

Honoring its memory, I collected a few images from the world wide web:
