August 10th World Lion Day

So you like cats? How about really, really big cats!?! Like the size that plays with you instead of you playing with it! Yes, we are talking about the “King of the Jungle”, the lion. They can run up to 50 miles an hour, weigh as much as 420 lbs and live from 15-16 years in the wild. That is if man lets them live that long. Today was created by Dereck and Beverly Joubert, of “Big Cat Rescue”, in 2013.

How to celebrate – Help save the lions in the wild before they are gone. Go on a picture taking Safari, not a gun hunting Safari. (Though you might want to take a gun along just in case) Live and let live.
