Not many people need to be warned that lions are not to be played with but it seems there are a few that can do with the advice. A young man who played with some lions recently took it upon himself to warn other people not to do the same.
Heading to Twitter, a man with the handle, @_DeanSchneider shared a clip of himself playing around with lions who he clearly is very fond of. In the clip, he also shows his face that has some scratches on it which he got from his playtime with the big cats.
"Lions ain't pets, they're predators," he captioned the clip.
Twitter users had this to say:
"The lion is practicing for the future...dis guy don't know what's gonna hit him."
"Crocodiles ain't pets, they're predators."
"Just look at this, who in this life will ever keep snakes as pets? I feel sick already."
"I think now you are spending too much time and you are very deep into their space. Animal behavior is not an accident brother, next thing it will be bigger when they taste your blood. I did animal husbandry and I understand well animal behavior. I understand you are attached."
In other Briefly.co.za animal news, Jason Arnold, aka the Snake Man, recently headed to his Facebook page to share the story of how he captured two large black mambas in the space of only 10 minutes. It all when after he received a call from a local man who had spotted a black mamba in his yard.
"At around 15h00 today I received a call from a resident in the Redcliffe area. He had been given my number by the Reaction Unit South Africa control room. He explained to me that he believed he had a large Black Mamba under a tarpaulin in his yard.
"With that, he dropped everything and called for help and kept an eye on the area from a distance until I arrived. The snake was safely caught and will be released in a suitable area far away from human habitation. The snake was a male Black Mamba of about 2.3 metres," he wrote.
