Tarzan fights Sabor

Sabor is what the Mangani called female lions in their language.


When Tarzan was a child he escaped from a Sabor when she attacked him and a little ape that he was playing with. When Tarzan was eighteen he slew the same Sabor and used her fur to make a loincloth, but he would later give up the idea because the fur was too dry and rough to wear as clothing.  


  • In the Disney film Sabor is a leopard, in the books the Mangani call leopards Sheeta.
  • Sabor was originally used to refer to tigers, Edgar Rice Burroughs changed it when he learned there was no tigers in africa.
