Some facts about the mighty Kings and Queen of the Savannah…NOT the Jungle!

  • Lionesses are usually the main hunters for the Pride. However, Males will join in too.
  • The Tiger is generally bigger than the African Lion. The Asiatic Lion is smaller than the African Lion.
  • Asiatic Lions are normally found in more colder climates.
  • Asiatic Lions are Asian Lions.
  • Lions are the biggest sleepers out of all the big cats. They can sleep up too 16-20 hours per day!
  • A group of male lions are called a coalition. A group of female lions and family of lions are called a “Pride”.

Some famous Lions, and Lionesses!:

Cecil the Lion

Jericho the Lion – Jericho was Cecil’s “brother” unlike Cecil, Jericho died from natural cases. Jericho also helped to allow his and Cecil’s cubs long enough to succeed on their own.

A hundred years ago over 200,000 lions roamed Africa and Asia. Today, that number is about 20,000. That’s a 90% reduction in the population. With only around 20,000 in the wild, they’re now officially classified as ‘vulnerable’.

I Love Lions <3

I always feel insulted on behalf of Lion when a Trump supporter posts a picture of  a Lion with Trump with that “A lion doesn’t lose sleep over the opinions of Sheep” This is such an insult to #Lions#Trump doesn’t sleep, he’s admitted it himself. Probably because he’s too busy checking his twitter account for “Nervous Nancy” Or “Pencil Neck” Schiff. They are “right”, a Lion doesn’t lose sleep over a sheep’s opinions…Lions sleep pretty much all the time, but Trump doesn’t sleep.

Lions sleep a lot…They also only “fight” when they have too…They don’t going looking for a fight. Can you imagine such an amazing animal being compared to Trump?  Trump wouldn’t be able to be brave like a Lion anyway.

Also, when Lions have to be brave, they are THERE! They don’t go “Nope, not showing up” also unlike Trump. Who has taken responsibility for none of his actions. Has shown up for not a single hearing. LIONS SHOW UP.

It’s the Kings day today!

Well, in Australia it is.

Annually, August the 10th is World Lion Day.

I’ll list a couple of facts, but the King of the…Jungle?

  • A lioness group is called a pride.
  • A group of male lions is called a coalition.
  • While Lionesses do most of the hunting, male lions will help with a kill when they are nearby.
  •  Both males and females have a very powerful roar that can be heard up to 8 km (5 mi.) away.
  • The more voluminous the mane, the greater the appeal of the male.

*Maybe he’s born with it*

  • African lions are considered vulnerable of extinction by the IUCN Red List
  •  Distemper is spread to lions by neighbouring village dogs as well as hyenas.
  • Since Mufasa and Scar were brothers and there is not mention of another male lion, or Scar being Nala’s Uncle…Nala and Simba are, at the very least, cousins. If not half brother and sister. In reality “Simba” would never taken over, he would have been eventually chased off.

  • Lions don’t tend to live in Jungles, they can be found in Africa south of the Sahara and in Northwest India.
  • African Lions are called…well African Lions and Indian Lions are called Asiatic Lions.

World Lion Day

The Kings and Queens of the African Savannah!

This celebration of the animal kingdom’s most beautiful and fearsome creature was founded by Big Cat Rescue, the world’s largest accredited sanctuary dedicated to big cats. August 10th is a day for people to come together from across the world to pay tribute to the mighty lion in as many ways as possible. Though a fun and exciting occasion for all, its foundations are based in a very serious matter: lion numbers have dramatically declined to the point where the species needs to be placed on the endangered list, just like its larger cousin the tiger.

*Now please be VERY careful when you chose to donate to any cause…Especially when it comes to Wildlife. They can’t let you know if the money is even getting to them and there are LOT of people who DO take advantage of this. Please do research before donating*

Saying that…Please DO donate too:

Please DO NOT donate too:

  • BJWT
  • Kevin Richardson aka “The Lion Whisperer”

I actually used to follow both of these accounts. BJWT isn’t even a registered sanctuary, despite what “Papa Bear” may say. It’s kind of like saying I’m Beyonce, just because I say. Kevin Richardson, blamed one of his own staff for her being killed. When it wasn’t the case and the women unknowingly walked into an area where the gate had not been shut properly. It was also NOT the first time someone has been killed on one of his properties.

Beware of “rescues” and “foundations sanctuaries” that allow people (especially celebrities) to come in and handle cubs/baby animals. Sanctuaries will NEVER allow humans to handle the Cats. We give them and they give us diseases, but ours kill them. Another reason to NOT support BJWT. Constantly having cubs come in (most of the time on a weekly basis), then they get sick, then they “disappear” is not  what a Sanctuary will do. Sanctuaries will only come and “rescue” cubs IF it’s urgent.

Share Your World…January Week 1 2018

Well here we are again =D

Share Your World…January 1st, 2018

Share Your World

What one word describes you best?

At the moment it feels “relieved” is the first word that comes to mind. You know that feeling when you’ve been in a really bad relationship for a really long time, and then it’s over…and you just feel relieved, that’s where I am right now.

I think the general word that I would used for myself overall would be steady. No matter how good or bad things are, I never lose it with others. I try to use the same routines to keep myself together and I keep treating everyone the same.

What is set as the background on your computer?

Lion and Cub

If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been too?

I’ve just been mainly to the UK and the US of A…I have family and friends in both the countries.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I lost lifelong friends this week…In all honesty though, I am alright. I haven’t cried, I have been laughing a lot and I have been get a lot of stuff done and I’ve been getting out a lot! The wonderful thing everyone else has just been amazing! Everyone else in my life has been doing what those “life-long friends” SHOULD have been doing. I think that’s the reason I just feel so amazing! I almost feel guilty for not feeling more upset…Only just almost ~.^

Lions and why Republicans seems to like this picture?

There is one picture that I’ve noticed on a lot of Repbulicans,  MAGA type profiles…It’s this one:

Asian Lions.png

I’ve seen it a few times and I think I’ve seen one with a more African setting behind. Now these are Asiatic Lion…They’re bit fluffier, so there are such things of Lions…apart from actual snow leopards…being in the snow. These lions are usually found in India……See how they are just walking towards the cameras, not running, the camera is at ground level…Almost like they are expecting something good…like food to be thrown to them?

Now these above Lions are not canned lions they are actually from a conservation park. I do find it interesting though a lot of Republicans use this particular picture. The Lions are feed and they don’t have to “hunt”…Maybe it is an appropriate picture for them?lol…While I love that the Lions are protected from people like Republicans and Hunters in general, I think it’s an interesting picture they keep using this one. There are so many other pictures out there, they don’t include a group of Lions basically being “kept”.

Pictured: Lion pride gets a chilly awakening as temperatures plunge below zero across the UK. 

Canned lions are usually breed in captivity for one of two reasons, to be shot and killed for trophy hunters or just for entertainment…Like circuses. Some of these Lions are eventually rescued.

There is a famous video that shows a massive group of lions:

Sad, isn’t it? The above video is real and it’s of a sanctuary park somewhere in China.

World Lion Day

Lions have always been my favourite wild type animals, ever since I watched the “Lion King”. I just loved the idea of having a Pride and having a strong father type like Mufasa. I am SO excited for the “live action” film, no one can play Mufasa like James Earl Jones can!

Last year I actually bought this bracelet and it’s one of my favourite bracelets, the colour is just so gorgeous! Please look up the “Original Sahara Bracelets”. They give a percentage of the sales to conservation work, I don’t believe that it’s specifically for Lions, it’s just towards the African Wildlife Foundation in general.

I LOVE the blue colouring in this bracelet.

I actually have another bracelets like this but the other one I found in a cheap type store and it also has a Buddha face on it. I might edit this post later, if I think if it’s appropriate.

In just two days from now as well it will be World Elephant Day (please press the link to pledge) I will be writing about that too this weekend. I love Elephants, they are so utterly gorgeous and I’ve never really seen an “evil” elephant. I’ve seen a lot of angry ones, but that’s usually because us Humans have done something.

I feel like I have been fortunate to be able to watch this live Ustream/YouTube feed that I am obsessed with called Safari Live” I have learnt even MORE from this wonderful program about all sorts of wonderful animals from Africa. Prey and Predator.

#WorldLionDay

I did not realise that today was #WorldLionDay! World Lion Day August 10

Lions are probably my most favourite animals and I think that they are just magnificent! I don’t know what it is about Lions, I think it might be because they are one of the few social cats that hang together in Prides and Collations. Yet, they are huge and strong, and you see them play with their cubs, so teeny tiny and how gentle they are…Especially the Lionesses!…Except of course when a Male collation takes over.

Some teeny tiny paws for you to enjoy ❤

I love all animals…Except for maggots…Eww! NOTHING on this earth will make me love them.

Lions are just a special animal for me. I feel though we owe all these endangered animals our help, from elephants to the black-eyed leaf Frog. We need to do something, it’s not their fault they should not be punished because of our stupidity and cruelty.
