Photographer's Note

Hi Guys!
Here is completely different photo to the ones i uploaded lately. This one, quite old one was taken in Seaview Game Park in South Africa, place where i spent 4 weeks looking after this and 11 other lion cubs.
We used to wake up at 6:30 every morning, got to the kitchen and made "special milk" for 12 hungry necks, all that followe by "poo and pee" procedure, performing all these sweet babies to public and all that three times a day. When we got to the park, cubs were from 2-3 weeks old, when we were leaving to travel around southern africa, cubs were 4-5 weeks old and when we stopped by on the way home these guys were not babies anymore...4 months old cubs, but still playful and still beautiful.
Small lion on the photo is called Anton, one of the bravest and cutest cubs in the pride. He has amazingly survived terrible sking disease (as you can see, he's lacking hair on his head and even on his belly you can see he is barely hairy, but he was strong enaugh and survived!!!:)
This was an unforgetable experience for me and i'd love to say thanks to all amazing people such as Janice & Rusty Gibb (owners of the park) Lynton, Ashley, Veronica, Babs...and many others!

Enjoy*
