    Bosman lots of very nice cat pictures for sure. Not your post but, What is this hunt actually for?
    Evidently there are ranges of "male lions" in this offer with various prices ranging higher.

    This "fine print" leaves a little room for error on the price! :)

    I've got to second brickburn. What is the cost? Is the cost based per hair folicle? I know the cost is based on the size of the mane but how is it calculated? number of hairs that grow? number of hairs vs length of each hair? what happens if the ph is smoking next to the trophy while taking photos and accidentally burns down some of the mane? do you deduct for each square inch that was burned by the cigarette?

    all joking aside, whats the price difference for an average maned lion vs a very heavy mained lion? $22,500 is a good deal but what does it cost for a big heavy maned 8 year old lion with the mane running up underneath his belly and way back into his backend area. There's definitely some big cats in those photos but I would assume they are high dollar cats.
