aaargh...I tried soo hard to get Alex to stalk the horses... and then at the last moment he was so curious that lifted his head to chat to Rhondelle instead of trying to scare her. Rhondelle of course is a retired polo cross horse and has been around stranger animals than a 3 month old lion cub trying to stalk her!
But the cubs, Benjie and Alex were old enough now to join the other young lions at the Park. Its time for them to start their training as "walking Lions" Their job will be to take humans on nature walks through the Park. They do such good work making humans realise that lions are rough, tough, and dangerous animals BUT if they are treated with respect, they can be the most amazing companions.
Granny who lives with us was also beginning to find that Benjie and Alex were too big for her to cope with. Mum would like to show you just a couple more pics of the lions before she had to send them back to their real world to become LIONS!
