A curious group was traveling around the zoo to look at the local animals in an open car. When the travelers approached the giant lion, the guide didn’t stop the animal from coming. Instead, he encouraged the cat to approach the visitors.

Suddenly, the driver stopped, and the fearless animal found no other reaction than to jump into the car. On the contrary to what many people may think, the animal didn’t intend to attack anyone.

The lion was looking for affection and attention from the people who stopped in front of him. His joy was contagious, and everyone was touched with the adorable lion’s cuddles. The beast rubbed himself in everyone until he got the attention he wanted.

The guide seemed to be the animal’s old acquaintance, since he was the first to receive the lion’s love. The tourists seemed to worry a little at first, but after seeing how fondly the cat enjoys the hugs, all the visitors joined the cuddles.

Many people could be frightened in such a situation. However, you shouldn’t judge the lion’s behavior only by the animal's scary appearance. This shows us how unpredictable the nature may be, and how little we know about it.

This unusual moment serves as an example of how reserved many people are towards the animals’ affection, and how prejudiced they may be because of the appearance. Bottom line, we all want at least a bit of love.
