Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography



The lion is one of the four big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. With some males exceeding 250 kg in weight, it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger.

The above photos were taking while visiting the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium.
