We are all used to seeing zoo animals sitting around looking boarded in their enclosures, but a recent visit to Bristol Zoo for me turn out rather differently.
Lions are of course a favourite of mine, but this one seemed to be looking straight at me.
Watch happened next was trutly wonderful. The Lion got up and pressed his face right up to the glass to get a really good look at me. I was just inches away and nose to nose to this remarkable creature. Few people get this close to a lion without being eaten!
A really remarkable experience!
