This spectacular video makes me want to go buy some khakis and hit the African desert (well, with lion whisperer Kevin Richardson, of course). Wait, isn’t that the name of one of the Backstreet Boys? Thank God that Kevin Richardson isn’t roaming around looking for lions. Can you imagine that guy singing the boy band version of “The Lions Sleeps Tonight?” Definitely a #deadmanwalking. Thankfully the zoologist Kevin Richardson has the magic touch and has been busy bonding with these beautiful creatures for the past decade and a half. Watch this amazing GoPro footage and see how lions and hyenas really live and what we can do to save them from extinction.
*Note to self: Don’t actually ever wear khakis – ever – especially the pleated ones (unless you want to look like Brenda Walsh circa 1991, in which case, you might as well buy a body suit too).
