That’s Not A Lion
'African lion' exposed when the animal barks.
An animal described as an African lion at a zoo in the Chinese province of Henan is exposed as a fraud - after the creature started barking.
It was then that zoo keepers revealed the so-called lion was actually a Tibetan mastiff, an animal that can have a furry brown coat, making it look a little like a lion.
Other species were also apparently mislabelled; there was a white fox in a leopard's den and another dog being passed off as a wolf.
