The meaning of the word lion, the definition of Lion:

n. - A large carnivorous feline mammal (Felis leo), found in Southern Asia and in most parts of Africa, distinct varieties occurring in the different countries.

In one variety, called the maneless lion, the male has only a slight mane.

n. - A sign and a constellation; Leo.
