Martin Lacey jr. of Zirkus Krone and his... lion, actually. I wonder where he got that bad scar on the chin from. No, wait, not really.

this is a good shot and all....But people below are talking about 'wanting a lion too'
here's my $0.02 on that topic
Haven't you seen 'Fatal Attractions'? If not, I suggest you go watch it sometimes, maybe it'll open your eyes to the danger these animals pose to us. Seriously, If you think lions or tigers are cute little animals that would do no harm, then you're wrong.
Animals such as this do not deserve to be kept in captivity, let alone as pets. Wild animals are what their name implys, WILD animals. Meaning they belong out in the wild. Big cats like them can KILL you in a heart beat. And it's photos like this that cause misunderstandings to people, causing them to beleave that they can tame a wild animal such as a lion. When.They.Can.Not! You can never take the wild instincts out of them, no matter how much you breed it down. Domestic cats and dogs,and other domesticated animals too, STILL.HAVE.THAT.WILD.INSTINCT.IN.THEM.

no offense, but this photograph comes off as "master and slave" for me. i suppose you already know how these spectacle animals are treated by their owners. :(

but the shot's nice though. :)
