What I thought was even more amazing was the reaction of the COMPLETELY wild lioness! She came up to them, let the two men pat her, just crazy stuff. Maybe she knew not to hurt them, 'cause Christian was being so friendly with them?? Beautiful stuff, sent me and my mum to tears the first time we watched the whole thing!
I know, I love that video. The first time I saw it, my first thought was that "OMG, that lion is about to attack them!" Then he just ran up and started loving on them. That got my tears a going cause it reminded me of how my cat acted when I saw him for the first time after he had been lost for 3 months.
I thought he was going to attack them too - I always get these emails from friends about people doing stuff and getting hurt. So I figured "this dumb ass is about to get eaten!" Then OMG I started bawling!
