Ich denke, dieser Löwe Boma ist. Es ist jetzt schwerig die männliche Junge zu auseinanderhalten. Ob Boma oder Aslan schaut er sehr königlich aus.

I think this lion is Boma. It’s difficult now to tell the male cubs apart. Whether Boma or Aslan he looks regal.

Abuto: Doing Tricks

I’m sure the zoo probably doesn’t refer to it as “doing tricks” but that’s what popped into my head. Abuto, the male lion at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, gets some treats for performing for the handler.

I used the bandaid tool in Photoshop to try to remove the chain-link fence from in front of Abuto’s regal face. What felt like a billion clicks later, I had the following image; and I’d lost my will to try it for all of these photos:

Gimme five:

He looked so cute keeping his face between his paws, as if someone would attempt to steal his treat… I suppose in the wild, animals do. But none of them were at the zoo.

Boma (I)

Mit seine Mutter, Bruder und Schwester hat Boma eingepfercht. Er hat ein bisschen unglücklich mit es geschienen. Es gab Spiele, aber Boma war in der Stimmung nicht. Doch hat sich er für mich in Pose gestellt.

An zwei Jahre alt können Sie schon den König der Tieren sehen, er werden wird.

Boma was cooped up with his mother, brother and sister. He seemed a little unhappy about it. There was play, but he wasn’t in the mood. But he pose for me.

At two years old, you can already see the King of the Beasts he will become.
