Did You Know? The lion has short, tawny hair, a paler underside and a long tail ending in a black tuft. The color of the lion's coat, which can vary from tan, orange-brown or even silvery gray to dark brown, is determined by the proportion of light hair to dark hair in the coat. Baby lions have a lighter, more wooly coat with pale spots on their underparts.
