If only they had pigmy lions and tigers like they do with elephants, that way they would be little fluffy things forever. But proper lions are still the obsolute nuts. I went to Kenya a few years back and they were quality little pups? kittens?.... ah cubs were stuck up a tree so the male just took a swipe at it and sent it flying off the tree It's a shame that there are fewer and fewer of them about all because there are more and more humans sad times.
