Naps With Lions

Over the last several years, I have seen many stories about and pictures of Kevin Richardson and aside from having a crush on this extremely handsome man, I have always been fascinated by what he does. As an animal behaviourist, he has developed close relationships with not only a pride of lions, but many other big cats as well as hyenas and other predators. He does this at the Kingdom of the White Lion outside of Johannesburg, South Africa. It is an awesome and emotional thing to watch him roll around, romp, swim, and nap with creatures as magnificent as lions.

Take a look below at this remarkable footage from Sky News as well as a film about Kevin called "White Lion: Home Is A Journey."

And visit his site, The Lion Whisperer for more information about Kevin, the Kingdom of the White Lion and conservation projects in Africa as well as more fantastic pictures and videos.
