Details of word LION

Definition of lion

n. - A large carnivorous feline mammal (Felis leo), found in Southern Asia and in most parts of Africa, distinct varieties occurring in the different countries.

The length, however, is sometimes eleven feet to the base of the tail. The color is a tawny yellow or yellowish brown; the mane is darker, and the terminal tuft of the tail is black. In one variety, called the maneless lion, the male has only a slight mane.
n. - A sign and a constellation; Leo.
n. - An object of interest and curiosity, especially a person who is so regarded; as, he was quite a lion in London at that time.
