ASIATIC LIONS
Arican and Asiatic lions are close in genetic make-up.But 10000 years of separation has made in them distict differences.Asiatic lions are slightly smaller with lesser mane.
Once they roamed free from Mesapotamia to Persia and Estern India.With the invention of gun powder,they slowly started getting liquidated.The last of the Asiatic lions in Persia and Turkey were shot at the end of 18th centyry.The last two lions in Afghanistan were shot in the 19th century and Pumjab also followed.It is recorded that a bunch of British Army officers shot and killed almost two dozens of lions in and around Delhi in 1857 immediately after the Sepoy Mutiny.Nawab of Junagadh suddenly woke up to see only a dozen lions are left in his domain in the forests of Gir.He took up with Lord Curson,the Viceroy and put a stop to this killing.Now Aiatic Lions are only found in the forests of Gir and by careful protection,its population is increased to more than 500 now.
