    Male lions have long hair on their manes and tails. The mane helps them look bigger to scare away potential threats before it comes to a fight. In addition, the thicker mane hair helps protect the lion from blows during a fight and may serve as a sexual cue for interested females. The tail sometimes has a tuft of hair which serves as a fly swatter. Female lions and the rest of the body of male lions have short, dense hair.
