Photo detail

A Tibetan mastiff looks out from a cage near a sign which reads “African lion” in Luohe zoo in Luohe in central China’s Henan province. Reports say the zoo attempted to pass off a Tibetan mastiff as a lion. The large breed’s trademark mane gives it a lion-like appearance, but its vocalizations are far closer to a woof than a roar.
