How many lion species are there?


Not too many people know the fact that there are 7 lion species:  African lion, Asiatic Lion, American Lion, Mountain Lion, Cave Lion and the White Lion.  It is widely known the fact that the common habitat of lions is represented by both open plains and open woodlands.  It is interesting to know the fact that fully grown males reach the height of 4 feet.  Needless to say, an adult male weighs between 330-530 pounds.  Keep in mind that lions can live approximately 15 years in the wild.
