Efforts have been made to move a small number of these lions to another park to try to ensure the survival of this majestic animal better. However, these plans have not yet put into action. The Asiatic lion grows to a height of 90 cm, with length ranging from 200 - 280cm. Tail long and hard to reach a length of 60 - 90 cm. Lions can weigh between 200 - 275kg. Their main prey consists of Nilgai, Chital, Sambhar, goats, buffaloes and other small animals sometimes. Gir lions have been used to kill cattle and even camels. Asiatic lions are built similar to their cousins Afirca but are often smaller due to its small mane.

Lioness is the main predator and no lions Their breeding season is synchronized with the arrival of winter in October and November. Its gestation period is 3 ½ months, ranging from 3-4 in the series. Lions breed on average every two years and are willing to have its first group of infants at the age of 30 to 36 months. They have a life expectancy of between 20 and 30. Just like their African cousins, Asian Manes are too beautiful, which are absent in women. Asiatic lions are generally smaller than the Manes African cousins. Asian lions, however, be more thick outer sheath and also a longer tail of hair, Dolce and elbow joints. Coloring lion lion manes vary.

Asiatic lions are smaller cousins of the African Manes Lions live in a more pride. These can sometimes be proud of up to 3 adult males, but it's always one, which is the dominant leader. Males are known for their laziness and behavior domination. Females do all the hunting and men rarely join, when you catch a very big animal like an aggressive Buffalo. However, when the killing is done, the first people ever to go for a meal. The association between a family of lions is extremely high, with aunts and sisters to assist in the implementation of providing all young people. Females remain with the pride for life, while men tend to establish their own wings at the age of three years. They live a lonely life, most of the time, then leave, but were also known to wander in the territory of two trios. These singles are known to be major threats to the dominant males lead his pride.

The forest was amazing .... looked so lively and it was hard to believe we were in one of the most drought-prone India. Almost immediately, the driver was pointing the way, and dust are the pieces that seemed tiger footprints "Great Lion", he said, raising his hands to the head to simulate hair.

I was very pleasantly surprised by Gir India. Having never been there before, I really did not know what to expect, but the stories of the "lions" had somehow stolen from Sasan Gir India is not glamorous. Until recently, these miniature circus, where lions have been fed and were followed by hordes of people, "the accents of a joke. The practice was abandoned some years. We were 35 km from Sasan and returned with fatigue. As usual with big cats, so a Gir lion, eyes downcast, the lion waiting to see him, his body almost invisible dark dappled light. It was a magnificent and we watched with eyes downcast. I did not even try to get a shot at optimal conditions of light film language "almost sure that the photos of garbage. After a few seconds, the lion quickly extinguished, but when Dipti insisted he could feel a murder. Search the area on foot, under the watchful eye in case the lion is back, and then I found lying semi-Sambar blind and could hardly believe our luck. Lions in Gir India had often been filmed eating buffalo that were given a lion bait-day show, but for my part, I had never seen a natural death. In addition, men are rarely, if ever killed anything, much less a deer Sambar, usually leaving work for women. Part of the stomach and back had been eaten, and I thought that this lion is unlikely to return until four on the opening night. Having hacked a route for the jeep, then we can sit on the kill, we left. I could hardly wait to return and yet we must be careful not to disturb the area by obtaining. Here too soon. Ultimately, with growing excitement, we settled in over the killing as planned and in a minute, the leaves rustled in the left and the lion came and sat down to fifteen feet of sambar. Again, within the forest, the light was terrible and I had to go back to my great Indian Gaur bison in a water point on the lens Palamau and then we had a display that will remain in our minds for years. Embarrassed by the flies to kill her, threw her hair and preserved, changing its position that the photograph is almost impossible. Then with a shrug of impatience, he went to the sambar and began to draw from it, forgetting the jeep and the camera noise. A minute later, for no apparent reason, he was gone. We could not ask for better shots, and the days following the Lions have given us many different images. What we wanted was a pride and there were reports of five men who were lying together in the west end of the park, we went there one morning.
