WILD PALS: Zoologist Captures Amazing Footage with Lions

Kevin Richardson is a South African zoologist that has been studying wild animals on the plains of South Africa for many years.

Through his years in the field, Kevin has developed an intimate bond with the lions he's studied. Now, with the use of GoPro cameras, he's caught the amazing footage for the world to see.

At first glance, when he calls for them, they charge out and it seems quite scary... only for them to jump and give him a hug!

Though they appear to be gentle giants, DO NOT try this for yourself.
