Lion Whisperer


Printer-Ready Page Layout



Kevin Richardson (born October 8, 1974) is a South African zookeeper who has been accepted into several prides of lions.

According to a website titled “Kevin Richardson The Lion Whisperer,” his unique relationship with the genus Panthera has dispelled many myths concerning the care of lions. Richardson demonstrates that lions and animals in general, have personalities, feelings, and are social creatures.



According to a 2013 article by Simon Crerar, Richardson rejects the traditional notion that lions should be mastered and dominated, preferring to develop a relationship over time, based on love and respect. “A lion is not a possession; it’s a sentient being, so you must pay attention and develop your bond like with any relationship.”
