The Asiatic Lion (Panthera leo persica) is a subspecies of the lion now found only in India. Asiatic lions once ranged from the Mediterranean to India, covering most of West Asia where it was also known as the Persian Lion.
Asiatic lions are slightly smaller than their African cousins, although the largest on record was an imposing 2.9m in length.
