Extra Large African Lion Skull, Male BC-286
15 ½" L x 11" W x 7" H 39.3L x 27.8W x 17.8H (cm)
This African lion specimen possessed a skull of exceptional dimensions (compare to our BC-054). African lions are found in the savannahs and grasslands of sub-Saharan Africa. They are the most social of all the cats and appear to enjoy physical contact when resting or relaxing, which they do for approximately 20 hours of every day. Few male lions live beyond ten years in the wild; females may live up to 15 years. The African lion lives in prides, typically consisting of related adult females, their young and one or more adult males. The lion's most distinctive feature is its mane, which only the males possess.
Because Bone Clones are molded from real bone, our products will reflect the natural—sometimes typical and sometimes pathological—features of the specimen casted. This particular specimen was missing both maxillary molars at time of molding.
