A trip to the zoo

Cute eh?

I was at Guzoo recently and they had this little guy there.

I got to feed him his bottle, then I lay on the floor and let him climb on me. It was wonderful. He was very gentle and didn't scratch or bite, although he did chew on my hair.

I was just getting up when my friend decided to snap some pics.

Many people believe that the only place for a wild lion is in the wild, but the truth is, zoo lions live longer, are better fed, in better health and have greater reproductive success, than wild ones, and they are not subject to the stresses of hunting, protecting their young, disease, hunters and poachers, or loss of habitat.
