This message, which circulated widely on Facebook, asks users to “like” a photograph purportedly depicting an entirely black lion. It features an image depicting the black lion.
Comments and submissions indicate that many users believe that the image really shows a black lion. However, the lion depicted in the image is not actually black. In fact, the image is the result of the digital manipulation of a photograph depicting a white lion. The image is the work of digital artist Pavol Dvorský (PAulie-SVK) and can be viewed in its original context on the DeviantArt website.
The source image used in the digital manipulation can be seen on the Cute Home Pets website.
Black Lion… 🙂 How many likes for him?
