The American lion – also known as the North American lion, Naegele’s giant jaguar or American cave lion – is an extinct lion, endemic to North America and northwestern South America during the Pleistocene epoch (340,000 to 11,000 years ago), existing for about 0.33 million years. The American lion is one of the largest types of cat ever to have existed, slightly larger than the early Middle Pleistocene primitive cave lion.
