Alex Larenty, a British animal trainer, has been working with animals for 35 years.
He moved to South Africa in 1999 where he works with lions.
At the Lion Park in South Africa, even though its always dangerous to work with a lion, Larenty showed visitors how he used citronella to calm the lions enough to allow him to approach them and take care of them.
Citronella or not, we'd still be terrified we'd end up inside that lion's belly.
Though it would be awesome to say you got to rub a lion belly… from the outside of course. LOLz!
