If the parks and reserves of Africa’s savannas were properly resourced and effectively managed, we could have 3-4 times the number of lions we have today. Today on #WorldLionDay, @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn and @WildNetOrg are launching a powerful coalition for #lionconservation--the @LionRecovery Fund. Find out more at lionrecoveryfund.org.

#worldlionday 🦁 #sedated lions are #safe lions 😜@007vet and I just finished a checkup on this 6 month old lion cub in #southafrica . Luckily, the exam was relatively nsf (=no significant findings). Regardless, getting to work on the king (or a lil' prince I suppose 😅) of the African plains is a dream come true!
Lions are one of the few wild cat species that hunts in coordinated groups and their success rate for capturing prey animals in the wild is ~25%. Their extremely long canine teeth (aka fangs) along with their formidable bite force, sharp claws (dewclaw being the most important btw), short term speed, general strength, patience, stealth, ambush skills and of course group effort hunting strategy gives them the capability to take down just about anything roaming the African lands they share territory with. Btw lionesses/females do most of the actual hunting.
Do you know the most successful predator on the African Savannah?...The #African #WildDog-these little canids also hunt in packs and their biggest asset is their endurance. Wild dogs can outlast any marathon runner or antelope when there's a meal reward, catching prey 60-70% of the time they hunt. Hyenas aren't too far behind in their hunting success rate FYI. I LOVE Hyenas too but that's another story...

I just heard the news, the world has lost an amazing soul. Thor made an everlasting impression on me, my first time at @turpentinecreek .
Everyday I picked Shelley up from work, I'd pop in and say hi to my best Fur-end. My heart goes out to all the Turp family, I know today was a sad day, losing such a dear friend. A candle will burn for King Thor tonight. 👑 Rest in peace friend.

Should you dress up your pet? If it will happily wear a hat or a lion mane for a quick photo to amuse you (and up your Instagram game), that’s great. If it has a legitimate need to get dressed such as for the cold weather, go for it! But if your pet is upset or uncomfortable in clothing, you should not dress them up.

Love a lion! Check out our campaign this week at www.float.org/rideforlions and help protect what remains of these incredible creatures. #Repost @greatplainsconservation with @get_repost
・・・ Lion numbers have plummeted across Africa in the last 50 years. Shockingly, there are only about 20 000 left. We're working hard to secure the the future for lions and create safe protected areas - for lions and the entire ecosystem.

It's #WorldLionDay! & street artist @sonnysundancer is driving awareness for the now vulnerable species through art 🙌. This amazing (and massive!) lion mural that Sonny painted - as part of his #ToTheBoneProject to help endangered wildlife - looks down over the streets of New York.

Getting good pictures of the lions at @zoozuerich is a waiting game. Not too many angles work for image compositions and if the lions aren't where you'd like them to be, you better have taken a good book with you. I always bring tissues to clean the glass of the enclosure but if the glass is dirty on the inside, pictures aren't going to happen even if the lions play along. What a joy when everything comes together! Here's a close up shot of a lioness paw from 2016.

Gear used: Canon 70D, EF-S 55-250mm STM
