    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.

      US-new is a great learning tool! It's taught us that every person that gets that close to big cats, gets eaten eventually :( R.I.P. in advance

    64. Lyss0624

    65. Di AftrPxrty

      Dude telling a lion what to do and my pitbull don't even wanna look my direction

    66. Sir Raymond LuxuryYacht

      I was really surprised about hyena having much higher bite strength than lions. Jaguars have the highest bite pressure out of all the big cats. It's because lions don't eat bones so much as hyenas and Jaguars. Amazing info
