Haha excellent, on the topic of lions Bren I have some bad news to deliver, you know you was hoping to make it out to NZ at some point to visit Zion Park, turns out a tiger killed one of the keepers there!!

The move comes after keeper Dalu Mncube was mauled to death by a 260kg white male tiger called Abu on Wednesday. MAF said the park will remain closed until it is satisfied the park is able to "consistently comply with the animal welfare and enclosure requirements for zoos and wildlife parks", in a statement this afternoon.
Apparently it's only a temporary closure. More info at:
MAF closes Zion Park - national | Stuff.co.nz

I think this might have been the tiger, this is a photo from our trip...

Yeah it's a shame, wonder if it will ever re-open? Difficult to see how given all the incidents that have happened. Looked like the new expansion was going to be really good too, you could see the guy giving us a tour was really passionate about the park.

he kept getting ill because of the amount of fur he kept swallowing, so the vet suggested shaving him! It is more like a very close trim every month or so, rather than a razor!
