Gentle Giant - One of God's most powerful creatures gently holds one of his most delicate creatures.... ♡

- Kevin Richardson It must be the most amazing feeling in the world to be able to bond with and have this type of intimacy with a wild cat

Dad, when I grow up you mean this will all be mine? That's right, Simba. (don't know if my memory is accurate but this seems like it was taken from the natural world of the movie Lion King.) Wonderful shot!

In ancient Greece, lions were identified with Dionysus, Phoebus, Cybele, and Artemis because myth indicates lions drew the chariots for these gods and goddesses. Here, the symbolic meaning of lions revolved around protections and they were viewed as guardians of the dead as well as guardians of palaces, doorways, shrines and thrones. They were also ultimate protectors of hearth and home.

The opposite of albinism called melanism, a recessive trait where the skin and fur are all black. This is perhaps the most beautiful lion I have ever seen.
