Lion - Nosy Crow Skip to content


Pottery lion toy, Palugama, Sri Lanka, 1980s

This painted toy lion is from Sri Lanka. Lions used to live there, but they don’t any more. Some lions still live in India, but most of the world’s wild lions live in Africa. A family of lions is called a pride of lions. That is because lions look so proud.
