    SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft Animals:
    HANDSOME lion wrangler Shandor Larenty is so busy with his lions and hyenas - who like to give him kisses - has no time for romantic relationships with girls. While his friends were out partying and enjoying their teens, the dedicated 24-year-old was working night shifts at The Lion Park near Johannesburg, South Africa, mucking out hyenas, watching over sick lions, or doing special night feeds with injured giraffes. While Shandor admits he’s doing his “dream job”, the work is demanding it means he has no time for a love life. Thankfully he does get affection from somewhere, but it’s usually from his furry friends at the park like Themba the hyena.

      To all the people who thinks they are a good opportunity for an epic selfie, better be respectful. They know your feelings and won't tolerate being treated like an astonishing specimen. They will love you than any other human, there love is selfless. All you have to do is love them back. 🦁🐯🐻🐼🐮🐷🐵🐱🐶🐺🐹🐭🐰🦊🐨🐴🦍🐂🐁🐦🐧🐓🐬

    58. Luke R

      Training a lion to show aggression at you while you stand a few feet away seems like an absolutely terrible idea. Then again, so is using these lions for movies. How disappointing.

    59. Skyla Williams

      These are lucky guys

    60. Kenneth Wood

      That would be so nice to be with all of those animals. Considering they are normally aggressive. Yet those are so calm.

    61. Arpan Enginr

      I am just so fascinated and in love with these animals and just how they are, and I'm happy to see these animals even just on the internet. It's just that they're so lovely. And the people who takes great care and loves the animals back. It's just pure beautiful.
