    the lion would identify the human blood as a foreign body, an "Invader". Wrong antigen types. Heck, even human blood can be deadly to other humans for the same reason, and we more or less all have the same blood. It is the "less" part that is the problem, tiny details. Other animals don't even fit the "More" part of "same" blood.

    It is mammalian blood but each animal is different and like humans, can be more than one type within a species.

    No, human blood will only work for humans and then, the right type.

    Human blood has many different types of chemical factors that are harmful inside a lion blood system. For example, the A/B/AB antigens are much different from the antigens in humans, even though they have the same name. The lion would die, painfully.

    No they do not. They last shared an ancestor with humans about 65 million years ago. That is way too long for us to be able to receive lion blood.
