Elderly Lion

Nature in the wild favours the young and strong and growing old is very hard. Alpha male lions are constantly challenged by young unattached males to take over their pride of lionesses and young, and have to fight to maintain their status. Inevitably age takes its toll on their strength and few live into old age. This old lion is an exception, and perhaps lived his life in a zoo. His eyes hold the wisdom of age and a degree of engagement with the viewer.
