    That's awesome! Especially given that the lions ate a pigeon right up, but left the baby owl alone. Cool story.

    And I had no idea Asiatic lions even existed. I love big cats, and think it's cool that India has lions and tigers and bears! It's hard for me to swallow the fact that upon my learning of this lion, however, there are only about 300 in the wild. Yikes.

    Yeah, its sad. Asiatic Lions used to range all the way from Greece to China, but now they're confined solely to the Gir forest in India.

    Anyway, wow, amazing that the owl survived. Its one of those warm, fluffy tales that puts a smile on your face.

    This could only have been cuter if the lionness started regurgitating food for the chick.

    Actually, scratch that.

    Owlright, that's enough owl jokes, don't y'owl think so? :D 

    Wow, that's cool. Asiatic lions? I seriously thought they were extinct.

    Damn shame they're almost gone. That asiatic lion reminds me of a liger. Awesomeness.

    it's a trick.
    these rare moments of animals playing nice is all a trick, a ruse, a trap. it's a way to keep your faith in things on its toes.

    think about it, a lion taking care of a defenseless owl?
    this is the same animal that kills cubs just to get another shot at making a new batch of its own.

    i am cynical because i still have scars from animals that were being cute and liked biting me even more, lol.

    Owl admit, I'm very pleased with how this thread is taking flight in terms of puns.
