What an amazing story about Alex Larenty, an English animal expert who has found a special way to bond with lions, elephants and grizzly bears. He has raised several lions from birth at the The Lion Park, outside Johannesburg, thus building a level of mutual trust with them.

Alex Larenty, 50, has built a unique bond with nine-year-old Jamu by tickling him on his giant paws at The Lion Park, outside Johannesburg.

“[He likes] being scratched and tickled and now his favourite game is ‘This Little Piggy’,” Larenty told the Daily Mail.
