Here is a lion’s face for comparison:
The cat has a black smoke coat I believe. It is very intense. The Maine Coon photo is by the talented Robert Sijka. He has photographed some amazing Maine Coons. I think this breed does produce some of the best looking domestic cats. Although I am not a great fan of selective breeding. I also believe that this cat was bred in Europe or Russia. Americans don’t breed Maine Coons like this. Someone may well correct me.
