They were up to their old tricks again a week or so ago. Just having a wee nibble on wing mirrors, door handles, bumper bars, mud flaps... anything that stuck out a bit.

I hope it was a rental too (and they took out full coverage insurance!). There was a nice long scratch on their wing mirror as they drove past :)

Not sure that I would like to come up so close and personal with a Lion. The lady in the passenger seat has certainly added a whopper of a dinner party tale, or tail to her list.

That's a great picture :D

Well, that's just how cats are: very curious and always ready to play - be they small housecats or big Kalahari lions :tongue:

It was very funny. I don't know why they just didn't move?!?

This was a couple of hundred metres north of Montrose waterhole.
