The most striking morphological character, which is always seen in Asiatic lions, but rarely in African lions, is a longitudinal fold of skin running along its belly.
Asiatic lions are slightly smaller than African lions. Adult males weigh 160 to 190 kg. The height at the shoulders is about 3.5 ft. The record total length of a male Asiatic lion is 2.92 m (115 in) including the tail.
The fur ranges in colour from ruddy-tawny, heavily speckled with black, to sandy or buffish-grey, sometimes with a silvery sheen in certain lights. Males have only moderate mane growth at the top of the head, so that their ears are always visible.
