Barbary African Lion – “Phantera Leo”
Barbary” Lion, he is from the Barbary coast of Africa where the temperatures do turn cold and there is snow in the higher regions. The Barbary Lion is an extinct species in the wild. This handsome boy gives his “call of the wild” several times a day, the sound reverberating off your chest…his robust voice just makes you shudder! Samson is our 2 year old male lion.

Male lions are the only members of the cat family to have a mane.
Lions are the only true social members of the cat family and live in groups called prides.
