Rawr!

South Africa ZA-44991 received 06-02-2014

Sent by: mepype

Notes: Oh, just look at the pretty kitty!  He looks so regal sitting there.  Unfortunately, wild male lions only usually live to be about 10 years old because of injuries sustained from fighting with rival males.  They can live for more than 20 years in captivity though.  mepype says that lions are part of the 'Big Five' of South Africa, a term formerly used by hunters but now used primarily by safari tour operators.  The other four of the 'Big Five' are leopards, rhinos, elephants and cape buffalo.
