Just like kitties – BIG kitties


We got to watch a lion pride for a nice period of time so we got to see various behaviors including hunting, playing, and what they do best during the day – sitting under a tree avoiding the sun.  One of the things that was a little surprising, at least to me, was that they use the trees just like a kitten’s scratching post.  If you look closely at some of the trees you can see where they have clawed some large gashes in them.  This photo was of two of the lions scratching at the same time – don’t you just want to take them home (and can you imagine what your furniture would look like)?
