Story of the photo: I was so shocked when I saw Pentagon moving! XD he is always sleeping when I visit him, so I felt really lucky :giggle: he was walking in the snow, being also curious about visitors. I could not believe my eyes!

Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:

Interesting facts: Lions are the only big cats who gather in groups. Packs of Asiatic lions have less members than packs of African lions | there are only some 360 Asiatic lions. Fortunately, their numbers are slowly rising thanks to protection | lioness gives birth to 6 cubs. Babies are spotted | ZOOs are encouraged to keep rather Asiatic lions than African lions. It is due conservations efforts | Asiatic lions are still killed by people, who want to protect their cattle
