It’s time for another lion fact!

A common facial expression is the “grimace face” or flehmen response, which a lion makes when sniffing chemical signals. It involves an open mouth with bared teeth, raised muzzle, wrinkled nose, closed eyes and relaxed ears.

Nala here makes a good effort 😎! Or maybe she’s just trying to say HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all of you from us. We hope to see you all soon in 2020 when we arrive at The Lions Foundation 🌲✨

This is Omar. At the first picture we see him on the day he arrived at Stichting Leeuw, the Netherlands in the beginning of 2015. The second photo shows him at Emoya, South Africa in 2017.

Omar was born in a circus in Slovakia. As a cub he was bought by a man who thought it would be nice to have a lion. But when he fled the country, Omar was left in his small cage. The man’s father tried to sell the lion, which failed. Omar lost a lot of weight and his cage didn’t provide shelter from the cold. When a group of animal activists noticed that Omar was for sale, they alerted Stichting Leeuw. In March 2015 the foundation rescued Omar, and restored him to good health in the shelter.

Stunning boy <3

Handsome chap!

Mooie kerel 😍😍

Mijn adoptieleeuw😍😍😍

Handsome dude hes certainly grown up lots xx

Dat kon je je ruim 4 jaar geleden niet voorstellen dat het zo'n prachtige kerel zou worden. Geweldig en wat is het een Beauty, mijn adoptie Leeuw King Omar 🦁😍

Ich hoffe die Löwen bekommen ihr endgültiges zu Hause und müssen nicht mehr weiterziehen. Ich würde mich freuen über mehr Infos von dem neuen zu Hause der Tiere. Klappt die Vergesellschaftung der 3 Prinzessinnen mit Omar? Mahli ist die beste, mein Favorit. Sie kennt die Männer! Liebe Grüße.

Mooie man
