The lion is a wild cat, second in size only to the tiger.  Panthera leo
can weight as much as 227 kgs (500lbs) in the wild and will live to be
about 10 – 14 years.  There are eight recognized sub-species of lion,
but the North American mountain lion is not a true lion and is actually
a completely different species.

Two sub-species of lion are extinct in the wild and the Asiatic lion is
considered critically endangered with fewer than 350 animals thought to
still exist.  African lions have fared better although these four
species are estimated to number between 16,300 to 47,000.  This is a
significant drop over the past few decades.  Experts estimate that the
African lion population has dropped almost 50% and this has led the
International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources to
list the species as vulnerable to extinction.

Lions can form two different types of social groups: Resident and
nomadic.  A resident population consists of several adult females and
their cubs and one or two adult males living together in a pride. 
Nomadic lions will either live alone or in pairs.  They will roam a
quite wide area without having a home range.  Male lions are able to
move between a resident and nomadic life, but female resident lions
create a strict hierarchy and will not usually accept a new female into
their pride.

Lions eat a diet consisting entirely of meat.  In a pride, lionesses
will work together and hunt for the group because females are faster
and more agile than males.  A male will never share his kill, but
lionesses will allow males to share their kill once all the females and
young have had their fill.  This is not the only way in which females
in a pride work together, their reproductive cycles are synchronized
which allows all the females to care for and nurse all the cubs.  Lion
cubs nurse for 6 – 7 months before they are weaned.  In the wild,
almost 80% of cubs will die before reaching maturity.  It is likely
that competition for food is the predominant reason for this high
mortality rate.  Another contributing factor for this death rate is
behavioural.  If a new male takes over a pride, he will ensure that the
females become fertile by killing all of the cubs.

Lions have been kept in captivity since as early as 850 BCE.  There are
records that claim lions were kept in the Tower of London as a part of
menageries from the 13th century forward.  The lion plays a significant
role in a number of Egyptian and Greek myths and legends.

Loin refers to the region of the body associated with the lumbar portions of the vertebrae column. This may be either side of the backbone between the hipbone and the ribs in humans as well as animals. It is that area situated between the side of the abdomen between the lowest rib and the top of the buttocks. A person suffering from loin pain may have kidney disorders. Loins are the plural form of loin. They are regarded as the seat of physical strength and generative power. Thus loins also refer to the genitalia or the reproductive organs.

Loin also means a cut of meat taken from the side and back of an animal between the ribs and the rump. This is a part that is widely sought after by meat eaters. They typically include the vertebrae of the segment from which it is taken. Thus the loin is a tender cut that can be butchered into chops, steaks and roasts.

The word lion has a Semitic origin. It was adapted by the Greek as 'leon'. The Latin adapted it as leo. Later, it was modified by the Old French and then by the Middle English. Lion is a noun. It is a large and carnivorous animal found in Africa and northwest India. It is a wild animal and has tufted tail. The male has a heavy mane around the neck and shoulders. Any of the large wild cats that resemble the lion is also called lion.

Figuratively, a bold and brave person is also called lion. A person who is fierce and portrays barbaric qualities is considered to be a lion. A celebrity or noted person is also called lion. Lion could also mean leo, a constellation. This constellation is found near the constellations of Cancer and Virgo. An idiom using the word lion: lion's share. It means 'the biggest or largest part'.
