Taiping Zoo (3) : Lion

Since there was Pumba in the previous post, how can we miss out Simba, the Lion King?

Who is this fella? None other than "the King of the animals" - the Lion, the smart looking fellow. His mane is well groomed. I guess he washes his fur daily with "Panthene" shampoo? Or is there any special shampoo for lion??

This is where the smart fella sit... on his throne, on top of the other lions.. (Remember? He is the King) There are two other female lions sleeping at the bottom . These female lions really know how to enjoy life. Still sleeping despite the sun is hanging up high in the sky..

Since we are talking about her, the lazy lion finally opened her eyes to have a look who is gossiping & talking bad things about her :P

Another smart looking lion lying further away from the other 3 lions. I heard rumours this lion uses Sunsilk shampoo :P

Aiyak.. Sleepy head.. Still opening mouth big-big and yawning although it's 9:30 in the morning already. "My dear lion, time to wake up.. or mind to tell us what you did yesterday night till u feel so sleepy this morning?"

to be continued...

I've never been to KL Zoo before, but from what I heard, Taiping Zoo is much better than KL Zoo. The animals here in Taiping Zoo are more happy & cheerful :)
