Lions gallery

In captivity, the lion has been induced to mate with other big cats. The offspring of a lion and a tigress is called a liger; that of a tiger and a lioness, a tigon; that of a leopard and a lioness, a leopon. The cat known as the American, Mexican, or mountain lion is a New World member of the genus Felis (see puma).
