This was not an impulse purchase. I can't remember when i became obsessed with the lions behaviours.
I realised that they are more than just a treat to my eyes.Not a MAJESTIC LION but ya THE majestic lion with its life to live and survive.Its really fascinating to read about different aspects of a lion's life.Its behaviour,its needs.Do they have any wants? or it is just its version of primal and bare needs.The book spoke a depth about its behaviour patterns. Interesting lives.Interesting facts.
