Marozi-spotted lion

-variously claimed by zoologists and cryptozoologists to be a distinct race of lion adapted for a
montane rather than savannah-dwelling existence
-a rare natural hybrid of a leopard and lion, or an adult lion that retained its childhood spots
-it is believed to have been smaller than a lion but slightly larger size than a leopard and lacking
any distiguishable mane
-it has been reported in the wild and the skin of a specimen exists,but it has been yet to be
confirmed as either a separate species or subspecies, although Reginald Pocock and Belgian
cryptozoologists Dr Bernard Heuvelmans both proposed the subspecies name Panthera leo
maculatus for it (but this currently lacks any valid nomectural status)
