Sounds like a good lifestyle.

In the Tsavo region they swim. In Uganda they climb trees. What next?

This is pretty cool, I haven't heard of tree lions before. Thought leopards had a monopoly on tree climbing over there. Ty for the pics :)

Claptomaan 1998 days ago

Beautiful pictures. I've only ever seen them hiding in the bushes! But this is amazing!

What a wonderful picture! I've never seen lions in a tree before...and that tree must be enormous! Thanks. :o)

when I saw this tweet, I was really expecting to see a photo of you in a hammock or something...

jamaisneutral 1999 days ago

they look just like my cats. From afar at least.

j9rodgers 1999 days ago

I hope you are taking these picture with a zoom, or that is a little to close in the wild for my liking ---- but amazing

loris_sl 1999 days ago

I would like to jump and grab that tail (maybe not)

UrmiRaj14 1999 days ago

they really don't look dangerous from this distance. but i know i'm so wrong

Soph_Ichigo 1999 days ago

You definitely caught them at thier very laziest. Which is probably for the best. : ]

puppaz 1999 days ago

But, do they need to phone the fire brigade to get back down again? :P

AHisme 1999 days ago

It looks rather confortable on that tree. Maybe I should try that myself.;)

stevebridger 1999 days ago

They've got sense them lions. More uber-species, then sub-species, I reckon

woodenelf 1999 days ago

Lions in trees??? Never heard of it before. :D
