I Love Lions!

Sariah the Lion Tamer


I’m in Zambia, near Victoria Falls, where they are breeding lions in the hopes of eventually reintroducing them into the wild.  Lions are becoming very scarce in parts of Africa.  These cubs are 10 months old.  These guys will be removed from human contact once they are 18 months old, when they can hunt well enough to support themselves – that is “phase 2” of Lion Rehab.

    “lion tamer”? Looks more like you are petting him. I’m jealous… petting other animals than me…

    Don’t worry, he’s not as soft as you.

      Thanks March! I just wish I could do them more often……..maybe after I leave Africa. The internets are not the best here.
