Lion in a Tree

Our expectations of a pride of lions is that they would be lying down lazily on the scorched savanna ground and once in a while get up and kill something for lunch. That’s why we named them a “pride.”

Turns out the pride is also very curious, at least in Israel, at the Ramat Gan Safari Zoo near Tel Aviv. The lions’ area is fenced and heavily fortified, to keep the pride from killing stuff. But, apparently, the constant noise of animals roaming just outside their gate is too much for the lions, who’ve begun to climb up the trees to have a look.

And not just the cubs, mind you. Here’s Sambouru, an otherwise respectable, mature male lion, sitting up in the gallery, watching the zebras stroll by.

Is this precious, or what?
