They are actually maneless male Tsavo lions. The males of this region often have suppressed manes if any at all. It is due to the difference in climate that this happens. The typical male serengeti lion has the typical bushy mane while those in the much drier Tsavo region have developed an evolutionary trait to conserve water due to their habitat.

Where does the maneless lion live?

Maneless male lions can appear most anywhere the species is found, but the Tsavo region of Uganda appears to have the most of these maneless lions among the population. Sparse manes there are common, and the two lions that held up the building of the railroad there in the early 1900's because of man eating, were both maneless. (See Tsavo Lions)
