Here's another view of Puyol, doesn't seem gorged to me.
Yes, the lion doesn’t look “gorged”, but the
article that you present here suggest it.
One explanation could be that in the moment of
the picture, the lion exhaled its breath, so the “wide” part of his body was
only meal in the stomach, but I am only speculating here.
If you check my list of East African lions,
there are several specimens which stomach content is unknown, especially the
larger ones. So, there will be no problem in including him. However, I will
like that lion-fans use this same criteria, after all I am not “mad” in using a
“full of beef” lion, but if I used the fans criteria, I should exclude it immediately,
even if at the end, a 25% of food in a lion or tiger is simple impossible and
constitute an exaggeration.
Maximum food intakes of up to 33 kg (East African
lions), 35 (Nepal tigers) and 43 (Crater lions) are EXCEPTIONAL CASES, NOT THE
NORM. I don’t understand why hard-core-lion-fans like Asad or Starfox insist in
misinform the people that this are normal
cases (especially in the tigers) and that even quantities of up to 50 kg can be
ingested in a 24 hours! THIS IS
A normal meal for a tiger in 24 hours will be
between 14-19 kg on average and there is only one exceptional case of a tiger
eating up to 35 kg. The figure of 45 kg is the hypothetical case of a tiger eating a maximum of 1/5 of its own
I assume that this is the same case for lions,
with normal meals between 10-18 kg. The figures of 5-7 kg in a day are just the
amount necessary for this cat in a
day, not they actual food intake in
