Animals, Lion Wants Privacy

(Leo the lion does not want anyone or anything to intrude into his territory)

The following pictures were taken several years ago in Kenya by John Robertson, primary compiler of this and the interconnected lexicons.

A lion is approaching his lioness.

The male lion was approaching his female companion when the tourist vehicle arrived.

The lion and the lioness seem to be saying 'Hello'.

Leo apparently was greeting the lioness after the strangers stopped to take pictures.

The lion wants the strangers to go away.

His body language seems to be saying, "Hey, what are you doing here?"

The lion wants the strangers to get away from his area.

Leo obviously did not appreciate having strangers hanging around and so he indicated that they should go away and leave him and his partner alone.

His warning was quickly understood and the visitors immediately left the area before he took any further action!
