How similar were cave lions to African and Indian lions?
The Manes of the Asiatic Lions are sparser to help them to cope up with the extreme heat in the Gujarat state of North Western India & also since it is closer Geographically to Rajasthan which is a Desert type of a habitat. The Gir National park also has Open Dry scrub & Deciduous Forests with Acacia trees, Grasslands, and there is no dense canopy of the trees, and it is usually dry till the Rainy seasons arrive. The present day Asiatic Lions once roamed from a vast Geographical area like Persia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Mesopotamia, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and from there t entered the Northern parts of India in the distant past. Hence the Zoological name of the species of the Asiatic Lions and Lionesses with the cubs are called as âPanthera Leo Persicaâ as t were originally found in Persia as Native Wildlife species (hence the word Persica appears) in the Historic & Medieval times. Prior to the mass destruction of Forests and hunting of the Wild animals by the local Indian natives, the Maharajas of India, the Islamic Empires of India, and the British dignitaries from England, the Asiatic Lions were also found in large numbers in Pakistan and the whole of North India and even as far down as South India up to the River Narmada, as a Naturally occurring species. T were hunted nearly into Extinction before the âNawab of Junagadhâ saved around lesser than 20 of these Asiatic Lions and the Forest was also declared as the âGir National parkâ to conserve the last surviving Lions and thus the Asiatic Lions were preserved for the future generations. The Asiatic Cheetahs of India were not so lucky enough & were hunted down to Extinction in India during the 1950âs. The Manes of the Asiatic Lions can also grow denser than the usual, if t are translocated and rehabilitated into colder Countries like England for instance â In Chester Zoo this Asiatic Lion developed a thicker Mane to adjust to the cold climatic conditions of England and the mane was a lot more thicker than the usual. 7. The African Lions, have thicker Manes, since t have the Big Game animals to hunt and eat like the Cape Buffaloes, Wildebeest, Zebras and Giraffes, etc. So the nutritional quality might help them to grow denser manes. 8. The Testosterone levels also determines the amount of the Secondary sexual characteristics of the Males like the growth of Facial hair and like Manes in the Lions generally speaking. 9. In the Tsavo region of Africa, Maneless Male Lions can also be found. This could be an Adaptation, or an in built Genetic trait Passed down the lineages. 10. The African Lions as a Species are closely related with the Barbary Lions which were initially found in North Africa and its range extended up to Egypt and England before t were Hunted down to Extinction, and t had the most thickest and bushy manes. 11. Plus the African Lions are also Big in size, sturdy and very well built in physique. T are the Largest Species of Lions on the record books right now. Hence most of the African Lion Species have thicker and denser Manes than the Asiatic Lions in general. Courtesy â Asiatic lion - Wikipedia

Cave lions are also described in the Old Testament Book of Genesis (1 Kings 20:19-22; Isaiah 14:14; Psalm 75:1) and in the Quran (22:22) which are the earliest accounts of cave lion existence. As we know Cave lions live in the colder climates, and they prefer cold or snowy regions. If we look at cave lions in the literature, they are often described with a black coloration, not white as in their living animals and also in literature of cave lion experts, when they talk about coloration of the cave lion they talk about the black colored color, but in the live, animals they may show white coloration too. These differences make the picture of a cave lion still somewhat unclear.
