Lion lovers?

ok- who loves lions? I plan to one day (my dream) go to South Africa and meet Kevin Richardson (the lion whisperer) and work at his kingdom, meet the Big Cat Diary crew (no longer on BBC), AND LIVE WITH THE LIONS for a couple months.

I love cheetahs too. Even hyenas are cool. Kevin raises them all and they love him.

That would be awesome! Any cat, any size, I love them all!
How old are you? I'm 56 so the odds of my doing anything like that get slimmer by the day. Besides that, I'd never find anyone who would want to petsit all of my kids!
Are you in, or plan to be in classes for animal health/science? That would probably help. Use the trip as part of the studies or even an internship!
Oh, oh, become a vet in a zoo! How cool would that be!!

I'm 41. I'm not at all into biology though. Believe it or not Kevin has NO SPECIAL TRAINING. He used to be a chiropractor. His good friend asked him for help raising a couple lion cubs and voila.. he took over the place, has his own website, youtube, written a book, made a movie and has hundreds of volunteers working for him at his huge "kingdom".

I am fearless with animals and am amazing with cats and dogs. Lions are wild and huge but I just know I would do amazing.

I know a vet who is one test/exam away from becoming a zoo vet. I would love to see lions and tigers in the wild and up close. It would be awesome!

I've always loved the big cats too. A few years ago I was in Tanzania and got to see wild lions, cheetahs and even one leopard. It was amazing, they're so beautiful and majestic.

I was in the Serengeti, Ngorogoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire. It was one of the most amazing experiences in my life. If you get a chance, go for it.

I love large cats as well as the small ones xD lions and tigers. I adore panthers. Jaguars and cheetahs. Leopards and even the little linx. I've always wanted a panther or tiger lolz. Large cats are so cool xD
