You've Been Around Been Everywhere



When: September 22, 2019
Where: Zooparc Overloon, tHe Netherlands

These boys are very popular amongst photographers - a bachelor's group of boys, a surplus so to speak - too many of their bloodline in zoos, but instead of silently killing them for taking up space, they get to live a good life here.
They are very pretty, and they liked to demonstrate it too :)

Species: African Lion (Afrikaanse leeuw)

Latin name: Panthera Leo

Originates from Africa and West Asia.

Current status: Vulnerable

 Did you know:  

…It is the second-largest living Cat, after the Tiger, but the tallest – at the shoulder – of all living cats.

…Lions are the only members of the Cat family to display obvious sexual dimorphism, meaning that males and females look distinctly different.

…Lions in captivity tend to be larger than Lions in the wild.

I’ll take all three. I’d have to convince the Mayor that they are House Cats with a genetic disorder though.
Surely there is a lioness, out there in the world, who would have their cubs.
