Text Appearing Before Image:
o their being cool, lions are much addicted to lying up in them. Whenwatching the mouth of one of these bohiras one evening, one of my shikaris sawtwo lions, a hyaena, and two porcupines emerge from it at short intervals ! Thelionesses are also given to dropping their litters in these holes. The cubs are bornat the beginning of the monsoon or rainy season. A large number of lions are kept in captivity in the State gardens at Junagarh, 412 Great and Small Game of India, etc. where they breed very freely. A good lion measures from 9 to 9J- feet in length.Like tigers, a disabled lion is apt to take to man-eating. From its colour the lion issometimes locally called the Unlia bagh or camel tiger, but the name by which it isgenerally known in the Gir is Savag, a word said to be of Arabic origin, meaninghe who causes the flocks to bleat. The lioness is called Shian. It is a curiousfact that although panthers are common enough in the Gir, neither tigers nor bearsare found there. L. L. Fenton.
