A few weeks ago I made use of my zoo membership again and visited the Melbourne Zoo on a cool and cloudy Saturday afternoon.
Something sparked the lions’ interest while we were there because suddenly all three started roaring in unison. It may have been difficult to fade out the thick wire fence when I took this photo but I sure was thankful for it. That sound, in the African wilderness, sans fence, would be petrifying.
And yes, that lion is poking his tongue out at me!
