Lion at the Oregon Zoo
in Washington Park
Portland, Oregon

The lion typically inhabits grasslands and savannahs, but is absent in dense forest. It is usually more diurnal than other big cats, but when persecuted adapts to being active at night and at twilight. A lion pride consists of a few adult males, related females and cubs. Prides vary in size and composition from three to 20 adult lions, depending on habitat and prey availability. [from wikipedia]

A male lion rested on straw. It had just opened it eyes as another hoard of tourists created noise.

Caves had been created for the lions while inside during cold days. Their inside enclosure was smaller then their outside one, but much warmer.

The front end of the classic Land Rover was attached to the glass so that the public could pretend to view lions from inside a Land Rover.
