So I was hanging out with a lion... · 5:23am
We were just chilling... because it was actually rather chilly that day.
Lujan Zoo in Argentina, where the lions and tigers have been hand-raised for generations around tens of thousands of people to the point where they pay less attention to humans than the average house cat does.
They cubs are raised with puppies, and fix upon their behavior to quite an extent until they get older and generally turn into very lazy big cats, which lions are regardless (tend to sleep/doze for 16-20 hours a day). Kinda like Rainbow Dash.
It's quite a fascinating experience... but their fur is very oily, as I'd read in several books, possibly to repel fleas or other small pests.
Should I ever own a lion, I shall insist it learn to bathe regularly!
