Lions on the Edge

Seriously – this for real.

NO DIGITAL FIDGETING DONE AT ALL

It is called…

“Lions on the Edge”

and it is an experience you pay money for in Australia.

So now he has finished the meat that was on the bonnet of the car…do you notice he is licking his lips ?

Who’s next on the menu I wonder ?

Nobody !!! Phew huh ??

Werribee Open Range Zoo in Victoria has an exhibit where you get the feeling of being up close and personal without risking a limb or two.

There is a giant glass (I imagine it is fortified) screen that runs through the bonnet.

Zoos sure have changed since I was a kid !!

Thankfully.

  1. Whew…. You had me on this one! I couldn’t imagine going to a zoo like that, and was very relieved to see that there is a glass (glass???) that separates the visitor from the kittycats. 🙂

          1. me? hahah She is evil. haha. But I am pretty twisted. Ya know I was thinking, Other than his size, the lion looks a lot like a pet cat eating kibble. You know what I would pay for? If they had a glass floor under which a person could lie down below that meat. It would be a more thrilling experience for sure. The person whould get a closer understanding of what a Gazelle must feel like. lol

  3. Fantastic! What a magnificent beast! I understand why it’s called the king of all animals! Indeed the zoos are getting more and more interesting. Thanks for your visit to my blog. I think all royalties in Europe are changing for the better. All crownprinces of Europe are married to commoners( the British, Danish, Dutch, Norwegian, Belgian, and Spanish princes).

    1. She certainly looked like it – I was wondering if she was short a few sandwiches in the picnic basket when I first saw it,until I realised the glass was there. I have to say – I would have been laughing just as hard !!!

      1. I have just been to your new site but as I am not with
        FB or Twitter it was impossible for me to support you on
        the delightful photograph competition… However it is a
        most wonderful offering and I wish you well even though
        my vote of confidence doesn’t really count for much here 🙂

        Have a lovely rest of evening Jo

        1. Well thank you for trying. I appreciate it 🙂 Apparently when voting starts you can text your vote through – but no matter – it’s the thought that you went to the trouble that thrills me…

          1. I echo Androgoth in this. I loved them, and had a lot to say about them too, but the only way to leave comments was FB so I couldnt do anything. Im sorry.

    On first 2 pics, I was like, WTH, they look so casual and relaxed ! Wha!!!! That’s a big , hungry lion right under their noses? Then * sigh of relief *, it’s a zoo and there’s a glass barrier, and there’s a baby pram right there. LOL
