This male lion is a new resident at the Philadelphia Zoo. Already there is a pride of female lions and its aging male leader. The lion, pictured, must live by himself until the older male dies or he is accepted by the female lions as the new leader of the pride.

Location: Philadelphia Zoo, Pennsylvania
