Photographer's Note

After posting this shot I'll take some time before posting more big lions. This lion has a mischievous look on his face and I'll explain why - he likes playing with cars! As I explained in one of my earlier postings some of the lions in the Lion and Rhino reserve have been bred for canned hunting. This means that they have had extensive contact and interaction with humans. Contradictory to wild lions, they are not scared/shy of humans or vehicles and will investigate to satisfy their curiosity - causing big excitement/fear in the vehicles that they are interested in (especially open Land Rovers like ours). Im sure these lions swap stories at the camp fire of who they scared the most!
