Lion: Useful Information
Here’s a nice small autobiography of a lion, sent by one of our readers 7-year old child.
I am a lion, my body is brownish yellow in color. I look like a normal lion but am very tall for a lion. I was born in Kenya and I had one brother. Soon my mother started to take my brother and me on her hunts. On my first hunt I caught a Buffalo. I only eat meat. But as soon I grew up I became ferocious. Soon some forest officials caught me and sent me to a National Park. The first few years were peaceful but one day an irritating tourist was saying to me, “What a slow lion“ I got so angry I just killed him. Then a few days later the ranger came and tranquilized me. Then when I woke up, I was surrounded by men. I started to roar then I realized they were trying to tame me. Since then I am very calm. Now I am very old and I cannot do anything.
