Rawwwww Cute! Male Lions Caught On Camera

Amateur wildlife photographer, Russ Bridges has captured the moment two male lions appear to be ‘getting-it-on’ at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in the UK.

They’re not, but rather playing, as male lions do #NoHomo.

Speaking with the UK’s Independent, Bridges explained what was going on:

“There are two males and a female in that pride. One of the lions suddenly got up, walked over and jumped on his friend’s back.

“I think it was a bit of a ‘should have gone to Specsavers’ moment as the lioness was just lying there next to them.

“In fairness though, every time a male went near her she snarled and swiped their faces with her paw.

“It’s not really unusual for them to act that way sometimes. I don’t know if it’s a dominance thing or something like that – it looks as if they are aggressive, but it’s all play between friends….

“My favourite shot is the one where he appears to be sticking his tongue out.
I’ve never seen a shot of two males on top of one another with one sticking his tongue out before – it’s like he’s showing some pride in what he’s doing.”
