Animal Biography

The Barbary lion (Panthera leo leo) is a subspecies of the African Lion. The Barbary lion, sometimes referred to as the Atlas lion, was an African lion population native to North Africa, including the Atlas Mountains, that is now considered extinct in the wild. It is believed that the last wild Barbary lions died out or were killed in the 1950s and early 1960s. The last recorded shooting took place in the western Maghreb in 1942 near Tizi n'Tichka.
