TY - JOUR. T1 - The effect of elevated progesterone levels on intraocular pressure in lions (Panthera leo). AU - Ofri, R.. AU - Shore, L. S.. AU - Kass, Philip H. AU - Horowitz, I. H.. PY - 1999/10. Y1 - 1999/10. N2 - Recently, we reported that intraocular pressure (IOP) in juvenile male lions (Panthera leo) is significantly higher than in juvenile lionesses. Whilst we could not ascertain the basis for this gender-related difference, we suspected that they were the result of fluctuations in levels of sex hormones. Because 19 of the 22 lions described in our previous report had to be re-anaesthetized, we repeated tonometry in these animals, to try and correlate between IOP and the levels of progesterone, oestrogen and/or testosterone. Based on elevated (,5 ng ml-1) levels of progesterone, lionesses were divided into a luteal (n = 8) and a non-luteal (n = 13) group. In the luteal group, mean IOP was 27.07±2.15 mm Hg, significantly (P = 0.001) higher than in the non-luteal group (21.61±2.70 mm ...

DU PLESSIS, L.. Blood platelet counts, morphology and morphometry in lions, Panthera leo. Onderstepoort j. vet. res. [online]. 2009, vol.76, n.3, pp.317-321. ISSN 2219-0635.. Due to logistical problems in obtaining sufficient blood samples from apparently healthy animals in the wild in order to establish normal haematological reference values, only limited information regarding the blood platelet count and morphology of free-living lions (Panthera leo) is available. This study provides information on platelet counts and describes their morphology with particular reference to size in two normal, healthy and free-ranging lion populations. Blood samples were collected from a total of 16 lions. Platelet counts, determined manually, ranged between 218 and 358 x 109/l. Light microscopy showed mostly activated platelets of various sizes with prominent granules. At the ultrastructural level the platelets revealed typical mammalian platelet morphology. However, morphometric analysis revealed a ...
White lions are extinct in the wild, and only a small number exist on a South African Nature Reserve and various zoos around the world.. On December 9, 2008, two white lion cubs were born at Serbias Belgrade Zoo, making a total of five white lions at the zoo. Although traditionally considered divine due to their colouring, white lions are facing extinction, with only about 200 in the entire world.. White lions, also known as blond lions, are not albinos; rather, they are an extremely rare type of African lion. The white coat results from a recessive gene, which means that for a lion to be white, both parents must carry the gene. As a result, few are born, and existing white lions are targeted by game hunters because they fetch a high price on the black market.. Few White Lions Remain. Although white lions originated in the Greater Timbavati and southern Kruger Park region of South Africa, Europeans began removing them from their natural habitat and putting them into captive breeding operations ...

Last year was hard to watch as pups and mothers struggled to survive. But when you look at the big picture, the sea lion population is still very high on the Central Coast.
Money bills and the coats of arms of States usually bear images of importance to a nation. In Africa many money bills bear the image of a lion. There are also 13 African States1 that have a lion in their coat of arms. However, only seven of those 13 States are participating in the meeting today, being the seven States where lions are still existent.. The fact that lions are depicted in so many State symbols shows how much appreciation countries within Africa have for this remarkable species. The fact that lions are also discussed within the frameworks of CITES and CMS shows that it is not only in Africa that countries care for lions but that strong support is evident from the international community to protect and conserve this iconic African species.. Studies show that the main threats for lions are habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict and prey depletion as a result of poaching for bushmeat. In its 2015 Red List Assessment, IUCN found that lion populations in Western, Central and Eastern ...

Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) naturally infects multiple species of cat and is related to human immunodeficiency virus in humans. FIV infection causes AIDS-like disease and mortality in the domestic cat (Felis catus) and serves as a natural model for HIV infection in humans. In African lions (Panthera leo) and other exotic felid species, disease etiology introduced by FIV infection are less clear, but recent studies indicate that FIV causes moderate to severe CD4 depletion. In this study, comparative genomic methods are used to evaluate the full proviral genome of two geographically distinct FIV subtypes isolated from free-ranging lions. Genome organization of FIV Ple subtype B (9891 bp) from lions in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and FIV Ple subtype E (9899 bp) isolated from lions in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, both resemble FIV genome sequence from puma, Pallas cat and domestic cat across 5 LTR, gag, pol,
Lions are the only cats that live in groups, called prides. Prides are family units that may include up to three males, a dozen or so females, and their young. All of a prides lionesses are related and female cubs typically stay with the group as they age. Young males eventually leave and may establish their own prides by taking over a group headed by another male.Only male lions boast manes, the impressive fringe of long hair that encircles their heads. Males defend the prides territory. They mark the area with urine, roar menacingly to warn intruders, and chase off animals that encroach on their turf. ...
Canine Distemper Virus (CDV) is thought to have caused fatal epidemics among silver-backed jackals and bat-eared foxes in the Serengeti-Mara system in 1978 and among African Wild Dogs in 1991. The same disease has now been implicated in the deaths of lions in the area in 1994, according to Melody Roelke-Parker (of the Serengeti Wildlife Research Institute in Arusha, Tanzania) and colleagues (Nature, 379, p. 441).. The first signs occurred in early 1994, when six lions in the Serengeti National Park were observed with grand mal seizures, while three developed facial and forelimb twitches and others were noted to be disoriented, depressed and lacking motor co-ordination. Subsequently, a larger than usual number of lion carcasses were found.. In order to investigate the epidemic, samples were collected from a number of dead lions, as well as a number of live lions - both diseased and apparently healthy. When analysed, the samples showed the presence of CDV.. The most probable source of the virus is ...

Located between the Serengeti and Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is home to the famous volcanic Ngorongoro Crater and one of Tanzanias most popular wildlife viewing areas. This huge volcanic crater has a permanent supply of water which draws all kinds of animals who stay in this area rather than migrating. Visitors come here primarily for viewing large game and bird watching, but also of interest in the conservation area is the Olduvai Gorge. This important archeological site has revealed ancient skull and bone fragments that have delivered critical information about early mankind. The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact ancient caldera in the world, nearly three million years old. The Ngorongoro volcano was one of the worlds tallest mountains before it exploded and collapsed. Thousands of wild game can be seen on the crater floor, including lions, elephants, rhinos, Thomsons gazelles, and buffaloes, but wildebeests and zebras account for over half of the animals that call ...
Many visitors to Tanzania are attracted to the Serengeti Plain, with its breathtaking views and rich diversity of wildlife. But the magnetism is especially powerful along the eastern edge, with a range of high mountains and the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater. This natural feature is one of the Worlds largest calderas: the walls of the crater were originally part of a giant dome formed by volcanic activity and the top of the dome later collapsed to become the crater floor. The perimeter of the crater rises to about 2400 metres (8000 feet), the floor is at about 1700 metres (5600 feet), and it has a diameter of about 20 kilometres. It has become an ecological island, with the caldera walls forming a natural barrier to the movement of animals. Whereas migration is the norm on the Serengeti Plain, the crater animals are permanent residents. The soil is good; the rainfall is reliable; there are good numbers of animals - indeed, the crater has the highest density of large carnivores in Africa.. The ...

One Shot, One Life: Lions Measles Initiative. This January, members of the Lions Quest and Sight First advisory committees came together to discuss new Lions projects for these programs.. The cornerstone of Lions service is saving sight, and there are some exciting new Sight First projects that will be implemented in the coming year. Lions and the African Institute of Tropical Ophthalmology in Mali will train ophthalmic surgeons and nurses, as well as assistant optometrists, over the course of five years. In India, diabetic retinopathy will be treated through an infrastructure development grant that enables the Lions Eye Hospital, Nidadavole, to provide diagnostic and treatment services.. In addition to these life-changing SightFirst grants, Lions Quest grants were awarded. In Virginia, USA, Lions achieved great success with a community partnership grant in 2012, implementing Lions Quest in local schools. Through a new grant, Lions will expand the programs social and emotional learning methods ...
Lions are the only social cats. Related female lions live together and form groups called "prides". Lion prides are family groups with all of the females related, mothers and daughters, sisters and cousins, and so on. Female lions will live with the pride for life. By age two to four years, male lions will be evicted or killed by a new coalition of male lions that take over the pride. Lionesses mature by age four and are ready to breed. They can come into heat at any time of the year. However, prides tend to synchronize reproduction. This could be due to new male coalitions taking over the pride and the death of their previous litter of cubs. Estrus will last from 2 to 6 days. From conception, the gestation period is about 110 days. Females will not come into heat again for another 20 to 30 months after a litter is born unless their cubs are killed. Then they may come into heat within four days of the death of their cubs. A female will on average give birth to three cubs that are 2-4 pounds. The ...
Two Asiatic lions slain in a game reserve in Gujarat over the weekend were likely killed by electric fences erected by villagers to keep the endangered predators from hunting cattle, forest officials said Tuesday.. The lions were found dead in a protected part of the Gir forest where several villages are also located, said Bharat Pathak, an official at the game forest reserve.. The carcasses appeared to have been electrocuted by powerful makeshift electric fences that are connected to power lines, he said. "The cause of death appears to be electrocution. We have sent the carcasses for autopsy.". The Gir forest is located about 330 km southwest of Ahmedabad, Gujarats main commercial hub.. The competition over land between rural villagers and animals is threatening wildlife throughout the subcontinent, and villagers put up the deadly electric fences to keep lions away from their cattle and foraging animals away from their crops.. The Asiatic lion is among the most endangered large cat species in ...
... is a beautiful animal with a dick skin and a lot of hair. Lions live in many African nations like Angola and Tanzania. Lions also live in parts of India. The most of lions live in Africa because the climate is good for them. There is also enough food for them. For humans the temperatures in Africa is very hot but for the most of the lions this temperatures is nothing more than normal. Thats the reason its so easy for lions to live in Africa.. The most of the lions cant live in countries like Norway or Sweden. For the most of the lions the climate in Norway and Sweden is too cold. There are some lion species who can live in cold climates. The Puma is one of those species. He also can live in hot climates like the other lion species. The Puma is a threatened animal. The Puma lives in many parts of North- and South America. In some North- and South American countries the Puma is extinct.. ...
The mysterious epidemic that is killing the lions of the Serengeti turns out to be distemper, scientists announced last week. But they are still unsure why the outbreak has been so sudden and severe. At least forty lions have died since the disease began to spread through the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania in February, …
Scientists at USDAs National Wildlife Research Center in Fort Collins, Colorado have "gone to the dogs." Well, African wild dogs, anyway. Two NWRC scientists recently travelled to Zambia, Africa to assist with research efforts on African lion and African wild dogs. Populations of these two species are having difficulties maintaining their numbers in many areas of southern Africa in the face of encroaching human populations, poaching, over-harvest, and disease. In fact, the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) has listed the African wild dog as "Endangered" and the African lion as "Vulnerable.". The scientists were invited by the Zambian Wildlife Authority, the government agency tasked with management of the species, and the African Wild Dog Conservation Trust (AWDCT) of Australia, a non-profit research, Zambian-registered trust based out of Mfuwe. The scientists, Dr. Mike Dunbar, a wildlife biologist and veterinarian, and Mr. Are Berentsen, a wildlife ...

Discussion. Ivermectin at a therapeutic dose of 0.2 mg/kg can result in toxicosis in predisposed dogs (Hopper et al. 2002; Tranquilli, Paul & Seward 1989). In contrast, dosages of 2 mg/kg can be administered to beagles and non ivermectin-sensitive Collies without evidence of drug toxicity (Pulliam et al. 1985). The dose of doramectin used in this group of lions ranged between 0.2 mg/kg and 0.5 mg/kg, which is what has been used in dogs (Borst & Oude-Elferink 2002). However, as the lions body weights were estimated, this could have been inaccurate, resulting in a higher than recommended dose of doramectin being administered. In addition, the lions were fed a horse carcass and although speculative, the neck muscles may have been contaminated with doramectin as the horse had been treated with doramectin prior to death. Other lions from the same camp did not show any clinical signs of doramectin toxicity. As these lions had not been treated with doramectin, it could mean that either they were not ...

Alec Ndiwane thought he was filled with the Holy Spirit when he decided to "challenge" lions at the Kruger National Park.. The Zion Christian Church Prophet was at the park with his fellow church members when, according to GhanaWeb, he went into a trance and began speaking in tongues. The group approached the pride of lions while they munched happily on an antelope, but thats when Ndiwane ran toward the lions.. Out To Africa lists humans as the major predator to lions, so its no surprise that the lions took on the challenge. Once he realized what was happening, Ndiwane made an about-face and immediately ran away. Unfortunately, lions are fast and fierce animals and when one of the lions snapped her paws on him, Ndiwane sustained injuries to his buttocks.. The ranger fired his gun into the air to scare the lions off and rushed the prophet to the hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery to ensure he didnt lose most of his buttocks.. "I do not know what came over me," Ndiwane confessed. "I ...
These animals have unique imprinting soley because of there social and precise way of life, like I explained simply with the amount of times lions lacerate and bite each other in feeding time that is most likely the sole reason why they formed manes (since other big cats absolutely has never, can never and will never develop a mane) because they lack the degree of quantity of the social structure the lion has, not just once twice or even several times, but periodically through out their entire lives, a defensive gene was formulated against it, tigers formed stripes to aid its areas where there are the tallest of bushes/jungles/cover, leopards and jaguars to their more divided terrain, pumas for their elusive but primary forestry/desert ranges...and lions which is quite obvious of the lot...they have spots because like most (as in a vulnerable state of being killed as a cub) needs a primary elusive camouflage to protect them against danger...hence africa lions or the leo species, have spots when ...

A team of scientists from WII short-listed three areas: Darrah - JawaharSagar and Sitamata Sanctuaries in Rajasthan and the Kuno Sanctuary in MP. A rapid assessment of these sites was carried out during 1993-94, principally on the following counts - extent of forest area, quality of habitat, prey base availability and presence of human population. While Darrah was found unsuitable on account of its small size and the degraded state of habitat, Sitamata was ruled out on account of lack of prey and extensive human interference. Kuno emerged as potentially the most viable option for this prospective novel translocation attempt. Human pressure in Kuno was considered manageable and the habitat fairly healthy and suitable. Further, surrounding the sanctuary, there is roughly 3000 km2 of contiguous forest that can potentially sustain a growing lion population. Historically, this tract is believed to have had an overlapping distribution of lion and tiger. Much of tiger range occurred to its southeast in ...
The current technique used for counting lion populations for research and conservation efforts doesnt add up, according to a University of Queensland researcher.
Currently, the majority of land used in South Africa for wildlife by the private sector has been converted from livestock farms to game farms and covers more land than state-owned provincial and national parks conservation areas combined. One animal that stands out above most wildlife regarding its popularity is the lion. From a private land owners’ point of view, lions are amongst the most sought after animals for photographic safaris and trophy hunting, leading to the increase of lion breeding and populations on private land to the point where the private sector is responsible for managing the largest portion of the lion population in South Africa. Therefore, the aim of this research is to determine the economic significance of lion breeding within the South African wildlife industry. Qualitative interviews were conducted with 21 breeders in South Africa. The results revealed that lion breeders contribute R500 million (US$ 42 million) annually to the South African economy.

Once I almost have made replicas of every 15 genus from the Felidae Family, I am going to start to make the rest of the tribe beginning with one specimen of the
Kingdom: Animalia. Phylum: Chordata. Class: Mammalia. Order: Carnivora. Family: Felidae. The lion (Panthera leo) has long been know as the king of the jungle. It is the second largest cat, with males weighing in at 250 kg (550 lbs) and about 2 m (6 ft) in length. However, this is nothing compared to the ancient American lion, the largest lions ever to have existed at 300 kg (660 lbs) and 2.5 m (8 ft).. Most people know about the superb hunting skills that the lionesses practice, and that the males basically do nothing but defend their pride from other male lions. Lions are the only cat to have sexual dimorphism, as the males have a distinctive mane. Some relatively recent research had some interesting things to say about the mane, in terms of selection and possible purpose. They found that males with darker longer manes were more likely to win male competitions, and be successful at mating. So, males may be able to size up their competition by comparing manes. But, males with darker manes had ...
Bacterial diseases like tuberculosis are common both in animals that live in the wild and under captivity. Then there is the viral disease, foot-and-mouth-it causes painful mouth ulcers and can be fatal. Of late, animals have been hit by a host of new diseases. Deer, for example, were diagnosed with blue tongue disease, hitherto known as a viral affliction of sheep and goats. In the Gir forests, Asiatic lions could be susceptible to contagious diseases such as salmonellosis and anthrax. After all, these are common afflictions of cattle which the lions prey on. But no study has been done to understand if the prey passes on diseases to the predator. Animals in zoos do not fare better. Tigers, lions and bear are known to suffer from ulcers in the gastrointestinal tracts-called infectious enteritis in technicalese-rabies and tumours known as neoplasm ...
There are eight species of big cats, including the lion, tiger, leopard, cheetah, jaguar, snow leopard, clouded leopard, and cougar. The onza is a possible undescribed species or subspecies from Mexico that resembles the cougar and has been seen only rarely. Sightings of the onza go back to the time of the Spanish conquest of Mexico in 1521. The first specimen of this cat was collected only in 1986 by a Mexican rancher, who shot what he thought was a puma (mountain lion). The lion. Lions were once distributed over much of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Today, lions are found only in sub-Saharan Africa and in the Gir Forest, a wildlife sanctuary in India. Lions prefer open grasslands to forest, but also are found in the Kalahari Desert. Adult male lions weigh between 300 and 500 pounds (135 and 225 kilograms), while the female weighs about 300 pounds (135 kilograms). Lions are a light tawny color with black markings on the abdomen, legs, ears, and mane. Lions live up to 15 years, reaching sexual ...
Trivia. Asiatic lions form prides (groups), in which all the work, including hunting, is done by the lionesses. The only work that males do is to make the first claim on the prey hunted by the females. Apart from that, they just laze around and do nothing. Reintroduction. The Asiatic Lion Reintroduction Project is an effort to save the last Asiatic lions from extinction in the wild. The last wild population in the Gir Forest region of the Indian state of Gujarat is under threat from epidemics, Natural disasters and Man-made disasters. The goal is to establish a second independent population of Asiatic Lions at the Kuno Wildlife Sanctuary in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. It is important to start a second population to bolster the population of Asiatic Lions, and to help develop and maintain genetic diversity enabling the subspecies to survive.Wildlife Institute of India researchers confirmed that the Palpur-Kuno Wildlife Sanctuary is the most promising location to re-establish a free ...

In fables from many different cultures, one animal regularly serves as a "trickster" figure. For Aesop, it was often a fox or a raven. In West Africa, Anansi, the spider, regularly fills this role. In East African fables, jackals or hares are known for their cleverness, as in this story of the trapper, the lion, and the hare. One day, a trapper met a lion in the forest.. "Dont you know Im the king of the forest," the lion said? "I have not given you leave to hunt here.". "I did not know, great lion," the trapper said, "please, tell me what I should do to make amends.". So the lion told the trapper that from that day forward, the trapper could keep the meat off any animal he caught, but he must give ...
Taco Fusion, a small south Tampa restaurant, is causing quite a stir over a unique item offered on their menu: lion. For $35 dollars taco lovers can try lion, as in, the king of the jungle. I thought the lion was good, said one patron. Since Taco Fusion opened in February they have built a reputation for their unconventional taco filings. They have previously offered game like beaver and otter, but the controversy didnt start until lion meat made its way onto their menu. I really dont like that at all, said McKenzie Bremer who opposed the restaurants decision and said that a threatened (endangered) species should not be served at a taco place. The owners say the lion meat comes from a vendor who raises lions strictly for sale of consumption. ...
