This Man Is Truly the Lion Whisperer!

This man has worked extensively with native animals of Africa. He has slept next to, fed, and lived with lions. His relationships with these animals, especially lions, have been developed over time, as he has worked with many of them since they were cubs.

Watch this video of him reuniting with one of the lions that he’s known since she was just a cub. The way she jumps up to hug him is heartwarming, and the way she cuddles and plays with him is truly amazing!!

Here are some fun lion facts to help you learn something new today:

  • In a pride, males and females have different jobs. Males protect the territory and cubs while females spend their days hunting for food. So basically, males are the homemakers and females are the breadwinners?
  • Like house cats, lions love sleeping. They can sleep 16 to 20 hours per day!
  • Female cubs stay with the same pride, but male cubs are kicked out at around age two.
