"Heart of a lion, this one"
Ron, sarcastically, after Gilderoy Lockhart pretends to faint upon seeing the shed skin of the Serpent of Slytherin.[src]

A lion is a carnivorous mammal. It is the second-largest living cat after the tiger. [1] It is the mascot of Gryffindor House at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as it represents courage and chivalry, the two most pronounced traits of a Gryffindor. In addition, Luna Lovegood made a hat in the shape of a lion's head, and would wear it at all Quidditch games between Gryffindor and Slytherin Houses, to show her support for Gryffindor, over Slytherin.

At the 1994 Quidditch World Cup, the scarves for those supporting Bulgaria were adorned with lions that really roared.[2]

Later that year, while introducing a dance lesson for the Yule Ball, Professor McGonagall stated that inside every boy was a lordly lion prepared to prance.[3]

A Sphinx is a magical creature that has the body of a lion, but a human head.[4]
