These big cats are phenomenal creatures. As they become rarer in the wild, we must step up our efforts to conserve their populations and help prevent extinction. This lazy bum was napping in captivity at Houston Zoo when amazingly, he awakened just when I was getting tired of waiting on him. He gave me this "WHAT????" look and went right back to dreaming about his native Plains of Africa.

Many thanks in advance for your visit, comments, + votes and faves.
