Answer (b)

ASIATIC LION (Panthera leo persica) (EN) Asiatic lion is a subspecies of Panthera leo and is surviving in the Gir Forest area of Gujarat, in India. Lions are the most social of the cats. The Lion has a broad habitat tolerance, absent

only from tropical rainforest and the interior of the Sahara desert. There are records of Lion to elevations of more than 4,000 m in the Bale Mountains and on Kilimanjaro. In India, the habitat of the Asiatic Lion is dry deciduous forest. Domestic cattle have historically been a major part of the Asiatic Lion's diet, although the most common prey is the Chital Deer. The translocation of Asiatic lions from Gir National park to Kuno Sanctuary in Madhya Pradesh is an issue presently. Gujarat Government refused to relocate the lions. Experts have for long been saying that Gir has become overcrowded with lions and there is need to spread them out to other locations to ensure their genetic stability and health.
