It’s World Lion Day today and to celebrate, Knowsley Safari’s lions, Mojo and Scooter are rolling around in a lovely pile of …. elephant dung!!!
Elephant dung is a smell that lions would naturally come across in the wild and Mojo and Scooter are certainly enjoying the new aroma.
The keepers at Knowsley use a variety of enrichment techniques to encourage the lion’s curious nature.
Both lions and elephants play an important role in Africa’s unique biodiversity and awareness days provide a great opportunity to shed light on these species, keeping their plight at the forefront of peoples minds to avoid a silent extinction.
Visitors can spot the boys on Knowsley Safari’s five mile safari drive for less this summer with 20% off online until 3rd September 2017.
