And from what I've seen, they deserve every bit of it.

More lions, fewer people.

Cat body language is quite readable even in their large cousins.
I was quite comfortable and even quite envious of him with the lions.

It was the hyenas that made me nervous.
The body language is not quite dog, and definitely is not cat.
Too much random in those genes. :)

I thought hyenas and lions were sworn enemies?  I wouldn't want to be smelling like a hyena when hanging with those kitties.

In the video he mentions that he hand reared some of the lions personally. They're still wild animals, but social wild animals that he was essentially the mother to some of them. That's a whole lot different then finding out the maximum tolerance limits (the hard way) of different wild animals that don't know you from raising them as babies and don't spend their lives living in complex social groups.

You know, probably the greatest achievement of animal husbandry in history was in figuring out how to keep the neotenous social trait in domestic cats.  Actual wild cats are more like tigers, and don't really go in for seeing one of their own kind unless they're ready to mate or ready to fight.  Every other domesticated animal has been social, either herd or pack or flock, before we got to them.  We've managed to ingrain the social instinct in them so well that when they go feral they form largish colonies rather than spreading out claiming bits of territory for themselves and defending them viciously against any and all intruders.

I dunno.  Didn't seem to make a difference for Siegfried and Roy when a tiger raised by people managed to just about tear Roy's head off.

The only reason the common house cat doesn't eat you is that it is not big enough and you keep it fed.  One day this guy will end up as lion or hyena food.
