Cats, and especially lions, are known for spending most of the day sleeping and lying around. They barely get up just to go get food and then they’re back to their familiar chillin’. But not in my wildest dreams could I imagine a lion playing soccer and doing it with quite a skill.
Prepare to meet Triton, a Johannesburg Zoo resident, who is, I can safely say, LIONel Messi among lions. You can see his excitement when the curator throws him the ball and he can’t stop chasing it everywhere, even into the water. This cute kitty isn’t afraid to get wet just to get his favorite toy back.
