Grooming a lion is an adorable, nerve-wracking process

How do you beautify a feline apex predator? Allow animal handler Alex Larenty to demonstrate on Jamu, his big cat test subject. Jamu's lion aftershave treatment was filmed last August at the SA Lion Park in Johannesburg, South Africa. All in all, "lion beautician" is right up there with "lion autodrome driver" on my taxonomy of lion-related careers I'm glad to pass on.

Great. A 250kg cat acts better than my 14lb domestic cat when I try to trim his claws. I'm going to have to show this to Mr. Adobe when I return home. He's going to be so embarrassed.
