Leo the Lion is located outside the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino at 3799 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV
A bronze statue of Leo the Lion is 45 ft. tall and weighs over 50 tons. It is the biggest bronze sculpture in the U.S.
It was created by Snellen Maurice "Snell" Johnson in 1997 and replaced a lion sculpture that some thought to be unlucky because visitors had to enter the casino through the lion's mouth.
