SO MANY LION HUGS! Check Out The Lion Whisperer!

Filed under: Cuteness!LionsAmazingHyenaGIFs

Lion Hugz!

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!!

Science Explains Why Hyenas STINK! Who Knew They Had Such A Horrible Stench??

Filed under: Science!HygieneHyena

Hyena stink is caused by bacteria??

Ever smell a hyena??

No?! Really?? Oh… well they stink. BAD.

Mainly from a scent gland under their tails.

Many animals like to rub their butts against stuff to make their presence known.

The same is true for hyenas. They can tell sex, age, family or clan and more just by smelling other hyenas' markings.

Scientists have long theorized that these smells aren't made by the animals themselves but

Filed under: HalloweenCuteness!ZooHyena

A cute hyena cub played with a pumpkin for Halloween festivities at Berlin Zoo!

Everyone is getting into the spirit of Halloween!

Even zoo animals are, just like these lions and the (above) hyena cub!!

A spotted Hyena at Berlin Zoo gave birth to a cute baby boy a few months ago, in the middle of summer.

Her little baby, Toki, has a beautiful black coat which will lighten in time, but not before Halloween!

The little cutie got a Halloween surprise from the zoo keepers… a pumpkin!!

He smashed it open and played with it and was just all around cute!

Awwww, we wanna squeeze that little fuzz ball and give him all the pumpkins in the world!

So stankin' cute!

Odi Is The Happiest Hyena Ever!

Filed under: InspirationPetsCuteness!

After being rejected from his mother only half an hour after being born, Odi the Hyena was adopted by Marcell Tournier and his girlfriend San-Mare Pretorious, and he couldn't be happier!

Shouldn't this couple be scared to live with a hyena? Here's what Marcell has said on the subject:

'We're part of his social structure.' When I play with him I don't hurt him but I'm always the one doing the rougher playing to let him know who's boss.

Currently, Odi lives at the Predator World Zoo near Sun City, in South Africa, and he keeps his owners very busy. Here's what Tournier has said about it:

He keeps us busy right through the night.

He may not keep the couple so busy in the near future though, because they're in the process of looking for a female companion for Odi. Hopefully it all works out!

We wish Odi and his family all the best!
