We love the Lion Whisperer!Meet Kevin Richardson, and no, we are not talking about the Backstreet Boy. This man is known as “The Lion Whisperer”. Kevin started studying zoology in college, but he quit after two years because he thought the courses were too repetitive and they didn’t teach enough about mammals. He ended up studying exercise physiology, which is a career that has nothing to do with animals. Eventually he took a part time job at the Lion Park, near his hometown of Johannesburg. Now he works with these adorable “kitties” for a living.
Look at this hyena. It’s as if it was in love with him.
The King Of The Jungle And KevinPeople might think that Kevin can get close to them because they might be trained, or missing their teeth or their claws. But don’t be fooled. These animals live free in the wild and have all their teeth and claws.
Respect the king.
#Respect. On #worldwildlifeday I'd like to encourage everyone to respect wildlife. I think this quote is relevant in today's day and age. "If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men. ~St. Francis of Assisi" #happyworldwildlifeday2017 #worldwildlifeday #savewildlife #protecthabitat Photo credit @adriansteirn
