Kevin Richardson is a total lion whisperer!
So it makes sense that he covered himself in GoPro cameras and ran through the African bush to get lion hugs.
That's right, he's friends with lions and hyenas and they love him as if we were one of their own!
He gets very up close and personal with these beasts and it's truly ahmayzng!
Kevin doesn't just enjoy laying around with big cats… he wants to bring to light the fact that they're numbers are seriously dwindling in the wild!
In the 1950s there were around 100,000 lions in Africa… now? There are only as few as 32,000!
That's awful! Stop hunting lions, people!
They're so beautiful and majestic and cute, don't you want them around for generations and generations to be able to enjoy them??
Check out 15 minutes of Kevin hanging with big cats and hyenas AFTER THE JUMP!!
This lion, you guys, this lion. We can't… we just can't…
We're suffering a serious cuteness overload and we don't care!
A lion cub named Karis lives at Blair Drummond Safari Park near Stirling, central Scotland and we're about to buy a plane ticket there just for this little cubster.
She was given the ahmayzing opportunity to play in a pile of fallen fall leaves and good gravy the result was incrediballs!
She jumped around in the pile, attacking the leaves with 1/16 the ferocity of a lion (seeing as how she's all super small and cute).
The faces this little cub make are impossicute and we can barely handle it.
Now if you'll excuse us, we have to get back to staring at this photo. That FACE!! AHHHH!

Awww! Look at those little guys!
Twin lion cubs were born in the Gaza strip for the first time EVER!!
Lions were first illegally smuggled into Gaza through tunnels from Egypt.
The little cubs are at the Bissan amusement park, a zoo run by
We sometimes forget that even if an animal has lived in a zoo its entire life… they're still a wild animal.
They may look cute and cuddly and might even act that way sometimes but an animal is an animal and sometimes they just snap for no reason.
That seems to be the case at the Dallas Zoo because two lions killed a lioness for no reason at all!!
This past Sunday, a male lion attacked Johari, a 5-year-old female, biting her in the neck out of nowhere.
Before zookeepers could intervene, another male lion joined in and the two murdered Johari… right in front of zoo patrons!!
That's so awful! We really hope no little kids were watching!
Check out the video (above) to learn how it went down and find out what's going to happen to those murderous lions.
Jorja Fox, star of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, lost her beloved doggy in January.
It was really tough and she was even still mourning the loss of her pup when her new doggy Bexar (pronounced Bear) walked into her life!
Ahhhhh! We love baby lionsssss!
Little lion cubs are so stankin' cute because they're not big enough to eat faces yet and they're just like giant kittiesssss!
Oregon Zoo's lioness Neka has 7-week-old cubs and they're just the best things ever.
The three tiny cubs are seen climbing all over stuff, chasing each other and trying to eat their mama's tail! Ha!
They're so incredibly cute we can hardly handle it.
We wanna be in there running around with them! (As long as the adult lions are far, farrrrrrr away!)
Check out the video (above) for some serious lion cub cuteness!
It really wouldn't be Halloween without pumpkins!
And it wouldn't be a fun Halloween without a little (a lot of) pumpkin destruction!!
Who doesn't love to smash pumpkins??
We know some big cats at Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida who DEF love to smash up pumpkins!
It's pretty amazing how these cats immediately know what to do.
They enter their enclosure, see a bright orange, foreign object and immediately go in for the kill!
Lions and tigers should be given fruits and veggies to destroy on a daily basis!
We'd watch an entire TV show based around big cats destroying food! LOLz!
Check out the video (above) to see some cutie cats demolishing some pumpkins in the cutest way possible!
