I wish I had this job. This gentleman works with lions from an early age to help introduce them back into the wild. I would look forward to going to work each day. This photo was taken in Zambia.

That is a brave man indeed!
I imagine that it isn’t always so peaceful. But it is an important job. I would love to see lions make a rebound in the area for many generations to see.
Truly a worthwhile occupation. How wonderful.
I agree Ruth…and I hope the lions succeed and make plenty of babies 🙂
I would LOVE that job. Sign me up! Oh wait—I bet it would help if I lived in Zambia…
It is a beautiful country if that helps 🙂
Well, I wouldn’t like to have his job but I’d love to visit his ‘kingdom’.
I really enjoyed my visit. I hope you get to see it.
What that man does is praiseworthy. There could be no better job than helpde the Planet and its species to survive!
I agree with you…I love this planet and all of its creatures and would like to see everyone coexist and to live happy lives.
Job is ok but the lions are still wild animals.Last year one of the handlers was mauled by n lion here in NZ. Was a real sad thing, still is bad. They didn’t kill the lion because it still is a wild animal.
That is a horrible thing…working with wild animals does indeed mean that risks are involved. My heart goes out to his family. Lions, no matter how cute, are still predators.
I wish I had his job as well
It would be nice to make such a difference in this world.
That would be so awesome!
Yes…and the views are amazing.
Wht an incredible life, though a bit scary if your companion is having a bad hair day!!
I would not want to hang out with a lion that got out on the wrong side of the bed.
WOW! He is great and brave man… Wonderful photograph you captured dear TBM, fascinated me. Thank you, with my love, nia
Thanks Nia…I don’t know if I would be as brave.
Wow, that’s pretty neat…and very brave of him to work so closely with lions!
Yes…I don’t know if I could do that. I’m assuming a bad day on the job is a really bad day on the job.
Same job as Tylers sister. It seems like lots of fun but luckily for us, it is not that glamorous!
Oh I’m sure their are unpleasant tasks involved.
Wow! What a great picture! Right when I saw the picture I had to read your description just to know why a man was so close to a lioness! Yes, this would be a very cool job!
I think I would find it rewarding.
I’d love to work with lions… too cool.
It would be scary, but it would keep me on my toes.
Same with you…I’d love to have his job too 🙂
This is a lovely shot TBM
You love animals like me. Thanks Novroz.
Know what you mean 🙂 Wonderful capture.
What a life…
I would love to read your blog about that Hook!
