A Wounded Lion
This lion had been beaten out of the pride by a new male the night before. He had several injuries, one to his foot, causing him to limp. He will now have to find a new pride and win the fight for leader or hunt on his own, which is a definite disadvantage for bringing down prey and future meals.
Some male lions exceed 550 pounds, making it the second-largest cat after the tiger.
