Last chance to see... by White-Voodoo Last chance to see... by White-Voodoo
This shot is a little melancholy. This handsome guy is a Barbary Lion. They are unique in being the only known Lion to live in snow covered areas.

They are unfortunately also unique, in that they are extinct in the wild - I'm told this guy is one of the handful left in captivity. As all Barbarys live in captivity, there is virtually no hope of ever re-introducing them into the wild.

A truly sobering shoot for me, and a last chance to see one of these magnificent creatures before they are consigned to the history books...

Entered in the zoo photographer competition [link]
