But somehow the footage never seems to do the King of the Jungle justice. In terms of size, that is. We're always told how big a mature male lion is but I've never been able to appreciate the fact, High Definition or no High Definition, it never seems to make a difference.
Until, that is, I came across the photograph below. I'm sad it's a dead lion but this post isn't part of the anti-/pro-hunting debate.
Lions are huge. Period. That's the point. Excuse the pun.
