Did you use photoshop to do this? Iv been trying to take other photos of lions and edit them to look "melanistic" for wallpaper etc but I cant seem to get it to turn out just like that.

I'm FOR genetic engineering!  Let's clone all endangered animals, and establish nature preserves/human cities where people could actually mingle with herds of semi-wild animals, on their lunch breaks(!).  Let's terra-form the world's deserts, and then Luna and Mars, and beyond.
Best, Jim

This makes me wish black lions were real.  The edit is so beautiful.

There is no such thing as a black lion. This photo has been edited; it states this in the description.

Oh ok but I have this feel that their could be black lions .;);););););)

Well, that feeling is incorrect. There are no black lions; it's actually thought that they lack the genes for melanism, from what I've been told.
