    That was my thought too. Way too perfect and pretty to be a wild lion, not a scratch or scar on him.

    Yes he is a S A lion but he was FAR from perfect, he was rittled with scars, many old scar tissue marks, and hair loss on the face, the scars were removed and sewn up, and then airbrushed to the perfection you see now. I'll photoshop and mark all the scar repairs once I do that you will see them and how well they are hidden with 8 hours of repair work and 4 hours of airbrush magic.....
    Any lion we do looks this good when it leaves the studio.
