Im not a lion freak,but they are magnificent animals,i think they need some attention on the forum...

Post your best,funniest and most amazing lion pictures
and
tell some lion stories...

And if anyone wants to argue that the lions roar isn't the most amazing sound in the Kalahari,your welcome :naughty:

Hope its not a silly topic.... :slap:

Was quite a scare!
Hi Charl28, I am the filmer of that video. I was wondering why you didn,t started your car. The young Lion was in shock as much as you were. But.... it is a nice piece of film and it was a beautiful morning. In this video, you see the same Lions but a bit earlyer that morning.
