Panthera leo spelaea in Vienna

6W. Panthera (Leo) spelaea, the cave lion, is the one in the middle; males did not have manes. (If you want to make your head hurt, dive into the discussion boards about relative sizes of various felines, past and present.) -- In "Clan...." we meet the cave lion early on and his presence is felt throughout, as he comes to symbolize Ayla in the way the cave bear does for the clan.
