Lions are considered to be the kings of the jungles because of their sovereign appearance and unrepeatable roar. Truly the animal is worthy to be called the king.
These big cats are playful with their cubs but you will never see a lion that would play a joke with a stranger.
Gren Sowerby was taking photos of animals in Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The 69 years old man had no clue what was waiting for him. When he spotted the majestic lion, it was 40-50 feet away from him.
Soon the man gave his all attention to take a good photo. But all of a sudden, the animal roared so hugely that the man was shocked. He didn’t expect the king of nature to give such a reaction.
What happened next is even more unexpected. A moment later the big cat smiled on the camera as if it hadn’t been him that was roaring.
The photographer realized that it was a one-in-a-lifetime experience and immediately snapped the smiling lion. The man shared the photos on his social account. It didn’t take much time for the unique photos to go viral.
The photographer comments that the beast wanted to say by his roar, ‘I’m the King of the Jungle.’ And when the cat smiled, it meant: ‘Haha!’
That was such an exclusive case that probably won’t ever be repeated!
