"I Love These Things!", Said the Lioness

Apparently, a woman on a south African trip to someplace she could see lions discovered that the lions know how to open car doors.  The lioness walks over to the car door, takes the handle in her mouth and calmly opens the door.  You can hear the woman in the video scream and say, “Oh my gosh! I didn’t know they could do that!”, which is remarkably calm. 

The lioness was later quoted as saying, "I love these things!  Hard and crunchy on the outside with a soft chewy center!"


  1. Many people think that the world is a petting zoo. I once had a girlfriend who, when we saw some wild hogs on the side of the road, wanted me to stop so she could pet them.

    I refused, and she got mad because I didn't love animals as much as she did. I tried to explain to her that if she really loved animals, she would stay in the car. Had I stopped, those wild hogs would have attacked her, and would have to shoot them.

    She absolutely would not believe me.

  2. Divemedic - while that doesn't seem to be the case here (she didn't seem to want the lion in the car), what you say is absolutely true. There's probably no more vivid example of what you say than that video of the woman getting into the polar bear exhibit at a zoo. I think it was Germany?

    Anyway, the bears were thinking "Wow! A new meal delivery!" and chomped on her. But only a little, until the zookeepers got the bears to leave her alone. I'm virtually positive the girl survived.
