Mirror, signal, mane-oeuvre! Lion is seen ready for a roaring ride
Settling down behind the wheel of a jeep, this lion looks ready for a roaring ride around a safari park.
In fact there was no cause for alarm at the Siky Park zoo in Switzerland — Zumba was merely exploring his enclosure when he popped his head through the back window of the empty car used as a distraction for him and his mate Timba.
The moment was captured by photographer Emmanuel Keller, who said: ‘To me it looks like Zumba is driving around in his off-road car to impress his wife Timba.’
Zumba had just enjoyed some lunch too if the bloodstains on his chin are anything to go by.
There are about 300 animals at Siky Park, an animal rescue centre and retirement home.
