LIONS (Panthera Leo) -- "Of all the great cats, the lion has always held a supreme place in man's esteem and imagination. The lion has always been honored by man, crediting the regal beast with attributes he prizes most; nobility, courage, loyalty, combative skills and sexual prowess. This attribution applies to both sexes, for a lioness is a creature of sinuous beauty, but the full-grown male, whose magnificent mane ranging in color from a rich golden brown to a deep blackish-brown, mark him as the veritable monarch of the plains. The legacy of the lion, King of Beasts, as the model throughout history is demonstrated by its appearance among the earliest drawings made by humans over 15,000 years ago..."

Robin Coles, the UFO investigator who questioned him, showed me a sketch which the witness interpreted as a creature with exceedingly large upright ears but which, to my eyes, looked surprisingly like the silhouette of a cat crouching beside the road with its haunches raised as if ready to spring..."

Russell Hoban's The Lion of Boaz-Jachin and Jachin-Boaz -- "There were no lions any more. There had been lions once.

Sometimes the honey-coloured moon shivered to the silence of a ghost roar on the rising air."
