Panthera leo atrox A.K.A. The American Lion
Lived .34-11 thousand years agoDuring the Quaternary Era, Cenozoic Period
The American Lion was the most widely
He mostly inhabited in the Americas. He is easily identified by his smoky fur and faded spots on his flank. He was also big in structure and looks like a big African Lion. He was very social and traveled in groups of many pairs. But, in many prides there were many solitary lions that would eat last and groom themselves. They would groom each other in social groups and mate for life. For a long time, they did not have manes. They would look almost identical to females other than their size. The females hunted and fed the pride. They act a lot like modern lions today!
