Scientists show that there is a curious relationship between a lion’s life span and the pattern of spots on each side of its face. Each spot is associated with the root of a whisker, and the pattern of spots is as characteristic of an individual lion is a finger print of a person. But the placement varies between the two sides of a face. Males with a greater degree of a symmetry tend to die younger than their more evenly-envisaged colleagues Thus can a male’s life be read in his face: it is his autobiography.
