(and not one pic a day anymore!)
According to Wiki, this black lion is Zhang Fei (Cheung Fei), the younger of the three lions, and is known as the Fighting Lion. Never seen the black lion dance - only the ones performed by white or yellow based fur. Handsome!
traditionally, a zhang fei lion is used by new school or whoever that wants to "pick a fight" with another sect - that is why it least popular
This is my first black lion too. I've found him hanging inside a shop in Chinatown. Looks rather fierce indeed, compared to familiar cutey white/red/yellow lion.Can see that he is a southern from his short hair - but then again, I've never seen shaggy lion in Singapore nor Malaysia.
