King of Forest a very health Asiatic lion. Look at strip type formation at bottom side of body which is specialty of Asiatic Lion.

Now due to care population has increased as 411 in Sasan Gir, Gujarat, India.

The Asiatic lion (Panthera leo persica) or Indian Lion is a subspecies of the lion which survives today only in the Gir Forest of Gujarat, India.In 2010, the Gujarat government reported that 411 Asiatic lions were sighted in the Gir forest; a rise of 52 over the last census of 2005.
The Asiatic lion is one of the five major big cats found in India, the others being the Bengal tiger, the Indian leopard, the snow leopard and clouded leopard. The Asiatic lions once ranged from the Mediterranean to the north-eastern parts of the Indian subcontinent, but excessive hunting, water pollution and decline in natural prey reduced their habitat.Historically, Asiatic lions were classified into three kinds – Bengal, Arabian and Persian lions. Asiatic lion are smaller and lighter than their African counterparts, but are equally aggressive.
