Kevin Richardson Lions - Pictures and Videos

Showcasing amazing pictures and videos of Kevin Richardson and his big cats. You'll be amazed to see a human so close and intimate with these wonderful majestic lions.





Watch this heart warming video...


Animal behaviourist Kevin Richardson has such an intimate bond with big cats that he can spend the night curled up with them without the slightest fear of attack. Richardson who is based in a wildlife conservation area near Johannesburg in South Africa, works his unusual magic on other species too. Cheetahs, leopards and even unpredictable hyenas hold no threats for him.




So instinctively in tune is he with these animals whose teeth are sharp enough to bite through thick steel, that mother hyenas even allow him to hold their newborn cubs without pouncing to the rescue.


But lions are Kevin Richardson's favorite animal. He lavishes them with unconditional love, he says, treating each individual differently, speaking to them, caressing them and, above all, treating them with respect. A former student of human physiology who once worked with pre and post-operative human patients, Kevin turned to animals ten years ago when he came to the conclusion that he could trust a lion over one of his own kind every time - well, nearly every time.

A close encounter with an aggressive four-year-old male in the early days taught him a lesson he has not forgotten. The animal pinned him to the ground and started biting him until something about Kevin's passive attitude stopped him in his tracks.




Kevin says he's most confident with animals he has known since birth, but claims he can become close friends with any lion less than a year old, when it is still flexible enough to accept him as part of its own pride.


"I have to rely on my own instincts to gauge an animal or a situation, and I will not approach a creature if something doesn't feel right," he says. "I don't use sticks, whips or chains, just patience. It may be dangerous, but this is a passion for me, not a job."

It's so nice to see that others share my love of these animals. I am so interested in what Kevin does and how much he loves the animals. The lions are beautiful. My cat's name is Lion and he's a large tan tabby. He's very spoiled, greets me at the front door, jumps on my bed at night and kisses me. So maybe I'm a little nuts, but it's all good.

I was left breathless. Seeing your setup is now on my 'Bucket List'

Impressive on many levels. Unlike 'grizzly man', Kevin seems to have a visceral understand of essential animal behaviors.

His structured approach and caution will enable him to carry on like this for some time it would seem. In other words . . . don't try this at home kids.

I can get my peaceful time whenever I watch Kevin's videos and pictures with lions. I love this. I love Kevin and his all noble work. Wish Kevin can live together with his beloved animals forever. Also wish to support him from many people around the world who love wild animals. Wild animals are really cute and they do have tender heart if they are brought up by human since were cubs. These animals much more tender hearts even than other some human being. God bless you ever Kevin!
