GoPro Teams Up with Zoologist to Show You What It’s Like to Cuddle with Lions

This’ll video will wake you up… or at least make you feel like your Friday isn’t NEARLY as exciting as it could be. As part of their Hero3+ Adventure Series, GoPro teamed up with zoologist Kevin Richardson (better known as the Lion Whisperer) to show the special bond he shares with the big cats and shed light on the dilemma of habitat loss.

Richardson’s relationship with the big cats is nothing short of incredible. There are few people in this world that see a lion running towards them and know without a doubt that it sees them as a friend and not a meal.

GoPro is giving us a chance to experience this incredible relationship from the first person point of view, all the while spreading an important conservation message and bringing attention to Richardson’s work.

So check out the video to get some personal cuddle time with lions or play around with hyenas, and then, if you’re interested in learning more, head over to Richardson’s website by clicking here.
