"Lions of ARTIS"

The majestic African lion (Panthera leo) is a legendary creature, heralded throughout human history for its fearsome power and courage, and is often connected with bravery, loyalty and strength. These beautiful cats reach a length of 4-6 feet, with the tail adding another 2-4 feet, and weigh in at 300-400 pounds. Today, these magnificent animals are a highly threatened species and very near being listed as endangered.

Taken at the Amsterdam Artis Royal Zoo, this photograph suspends time in a stunning capture of action and attitude. This memorable photo paints a picture as alive and vivid as if we had participated in the original moment.
