To witness lions eating is one of the best moments you can have on safari, but when does it become a little scary? Well, when you can't see the lions anymore!
These events took pace while on safari to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya, Africa.
(They do GREAT things for wildlife and the community.)
The big male lion featured in this video is wearing a radio collar. They are used at Lewa to help keep track of the lion and to aid them in various research projects. At times the lions eyes will glow. This is due to their special reflective layer called the tapetum lucidum. This helps cats see better much better than we do in the dark.
Even though we were in open jeeps as long as we stayed quiet and within the outline of the jeep we were relatively safe. So they say.
Lions needs our help!
Please view these various sites for more lion information.
*Thanks to my wife for helping me film while I was taking pictures and for not killing me for getting her so close to lion in the dark!
Some of the best things to see on safari are big male elephants playing. (From a safe distance that is) Elephants (the largest land animal) are protected from hunting and being culled in Kenya, but illegal poaching, limited habitat, and human conflict still remains a big threat to their survival. With your help, we can protect and save these elephants so that future generations can see the wild elephant roam Africa for many years to come.

These guys clearly love the African bush!
The June 17, 2009 hearing of the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission set a record for the number of animal lovers to attend and speak up at their meetings. Carole Baskin as been attending these meetings since 1994 and rarely do more than two or three animal advocates show up but at this meeting we counted more than 40 people who spoke in favor of tougher laws to regulate the trade in exotic animals. We hope this is the beginning of a trend and if so it will shape the future. Wild animals will no longer be exploited, abused, neglected and abandoned if the public continues to speak up for them
The best news is that Cougars and Cheetahs have been uplisted to Class I which means that they can no longer be kept as pets in Florida. Those who already own these cats as pets can keep them, but cannot breed or replace them unless they meet the higher requirements for owning Class I animals which includes 5 acres of land, stronger cages and they cannot use them for petting sessions after they reach 45 lbs., so fewer people will be mauled by them.

Alias Adam Dorn illustrates the influential power of his father, legendary jazz and R&B producer Joel Dorn, who pulled Adam out of school at age 15 and put him in the studio where he worked with the likes of Miles Davis and Luther Vandross. He’s been in there, both behind the glass and in front of it, ever since.

Cheetahs are the fastest land mammal! Capable of reaching speeds in excess of 70mph they are an amazing animal, unfortunately their numbers in the wild have dropped drastically in the past 100 years.
Namibia is one of the last refuges of the remaining world Cheetah population. A quarter of all the remaining cats are found in Nambia. It is estimated their numbers globally have declined by over 90% in the last 100 years. A local thorn bush species is invading the savannah in the country, causing over US$90 million each year in lost revenue to Namibian farmers, whilst also destroying the native habitat of the fastest of the cats. Now the Cheetah Conservation Fund has pioneered a scheme to clear the thorn bush and turn it into cheap fuel briquettes. The project is creating jobs at the same time as helping to restore the hunting ground of the endangered cheetah.

As human settlements spread further and further into the few remaining wild areas, conflicts arise which can be very violent.
That's the other face of the medal, when it's difficult to blame only men and to say that these wild animals are only victims.
It's a matter of opinion, but don't ask it to the family of victims.
In fact this can be very crude, and as I (rapidly) saw on other videos which are far worse than this, the images of a REAL attack are just very difficult to stand to a normal person.
That seems to me the limit when you just don't explain anymore what happens but just reject the whole thing as it's not physically possible to stand it.

The Lion King was originally called King of the Jungle during early stages of production. As in the case of the earlier film Bambi, animators studied real-life animals for reference, and some of the filmmakers went to Kenya to observe the natural habitat that would be shown in the film.
The film's significant use of computers helped the filmmakers to present their vision in new ways. These include some shots of Pride Rock, tall green grass, the smoke from the fire, and the waterfall in the new version of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight". The most notable use of computer animation is in the "wildebeest stampede" sequence. Several distinct wildebeest characters were built in a 3D computer program, multiplied into the hundreds, cel shaded to look like drawn animation, and given randomized paths down a mountainside to simulate the real, unpredictable movement of a herd. Similar multiplication occurs in the "Be Prepared" musical number with identical marching hyenas.
The Lion King was once considered a secondary project to Pocahontas, both of which were in production at the same time. Most of the Disney Feature Animation staff preferred to work on Pocahontas, believing it would be the more prestigious and successful of the two. While both films were commercial successes,The Lion King received a greater amount of positive feedback and larger grosses than Pocahontas, but both became known Disney classics.
The main locations for the film, including Pride Rock and the Gorge, are modelled after Hell's Gate National Park in Kenya. This animated film was created and recorded at a studio in Los Angeles, California.
