Gazing contest

katse

Staring into the eyes of a being that just probably would rip you apart given the chance is a little bit unnerving even when there is a fence in between. This male lion needed only to growl to make the hair on my my neck stand tall. Easy to understand how much it would frighten to see one standing on the plains and nowhere to climb to get away. No wonder many African tribes had passing rites to adulthood dependant on facing a lion.
