Crazy Safari Encounters of A Furry Kind

So they go on a guided Safari tour with guides and cars that gives them the most authentic experience possible.

14 Majestic Lions That Also Happen To Be Giant Goofballs Of Fluff

Ladies and gents, we present to you the mighty king and queen of the jungle -- in all their wonderfully goofy glory! There's something so powerful when it comes to lions, and to see them being...well, more housecat-like, gives off such a warm fuzzy feeling. Who wouldn't love to hang out with one of these giant murder fluffs?

First of all, here's some lion memes and some lion fun facts to layer down "a base" of basic internet lion knowledge. Once that is done, learn some more and lion up about lions on Encyclopedia Britannica and Wikipedia's Lion page.  The Smithsonian lion page has some really great pictures of the magnificent beasts and South Africa's Kruger National Park and African Wildlife Foundation contain very detailed information about the diets, habits, habitat and other fun facts about lions.

National Geographic has a very informative video explaining everything about lions and the Animal Fact Guide offers a simplified rundown of everything lion that is easy to teach to kids or to those just starting to learn about the big cats that happen to be king of the jungle.

Lion Has Radiation Treatment For Skin Cancer At a Private Human Hospital In Africa

A lion, named Chaos, at Lory Park Zoo and Owl Sanctuary in South Africa, started undergoing cancer treatment this week. The treatment was received at a private hospital in South Africa - and he was smuggled in by the back door to avoid frightening human patients. The 16-year-old lion was unconscious and strapped face down on a trolley as he was brought in to treat lesions on his nose. The 570lb beast was being treated by the five-strong team of radiotherapists and one oncologist in the unusual setting because there are no radiation facilities for animals in South Africa. The photos are truly emotional.

At the Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation in Mexico City, a lion named Miki turned on the charm and showed us all the proper way to greet a lady. Miki was the proper gentlemen, approaching the chocolate lab known as Camila, picking up her paw and giving it a gentle kiss. However, when he decided to do so twice, Camila decided that was quite enough and hightails it out of there. Sorry, Miki! Next time just stick to greeting Camila once.

When One Hollywood Couple Decided To Adopt a Pet Lion At Home

Tippi Hedren, perhaps most famous for her role in Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, is an actress of formidable gifts. But her role as an animal-rights activist and conservationist might well be Hedren's most lasting legacy. For decades, her Roar Foundation and the animal sanctuary, Shambala Preserve, in California have advocated for big (and not so big) cats—from lions and leopards to bobcats and servals—and she's been honored with a host of humanitarian and conservation awards through the decades.

In 1971, LIFE photographer Michael Rougier spent time with Hedren; her teenage daughter, Melanie Griffith, her then-husband, the agent and movie producer, Noel Marshall; and others at their home in California. Also in attendance: Neil, a 400-pound mature lion, who occasionally slept in the same bed as Griffith and, as these pictures attest, had the run of the house, from the kitchen to the living room to the swimming pool.

Decades and several attacks later -- one lion clawed daughter Melanie Griffith in the face during the production of the 1981 film Roar and required that Griffith undergo surgery -- Hedren admitted that having a lion live in her home alongside her children was "stupid beyond belief."
