We love watching National Geographic on TV. You can learn so much about animals and then when you go to the zoo, it always reminds you of what you have seen on TV.
I took some photos of this African Lion when we visited the Pittsburgh Zoo this year. My kids were still little when we visited there the last time. Now that they are bigger, they appreciated it everything a lot more. Plus, we don't have to carry them lol.
This lion was just relaxing on his den. He was kind of hiding away from all the people but I am glad I brought my other lens that day and I was able to capture him from afar.
I think, lions and tigers are the scariest animals. They are strong and fast.
According to National Geographic, lions are only cats that live in groups and they are called pride. I only see two lions in Pittsburgh Zoo. I imagine that they get lonely not seeing many of them.
