They might not look it, but lions are really just big kittens at heart. Don’t believe us?
Well, these females at the Oregon Zoo are about to show you.
While they generally spend their days lazing around (sound familiar?), being fed at the same time, and never fearing for their safety, these beautiful lions still crave a little wild adventure now and then. In an effort to keep them alert and agile, workers at the zoo came up with a fun toy that plays on their feline instincts.
The fact that lions weigh in at over 250 pounds and can leap that far into the air proves Mother Nature wasn’t messing around when she created these amazing predators.
I guess they’re a little different from kittens after all…
