Lion was bored. Zookeeper threw him a toy, but was caught off guard by lion’s reaction

Football is most likely the most popular sport in the world. There are people playing professional, as well as those who only enjoy playing as a hobby. But almost everyone in the world has seen a football match at least one time in their lives.
But have you ever seen a lion play football? I bet not, so here’s your chance.
Triton is a beautiful lion at the Johannesburg Zoo in South Africa that has a peculiar talent. Agnes Maluleke, the woman in charge of the carnivore section at the zoo, says that the lion plays football almost every single day and that it’s one of his favorite activities.
Triton always keeps his soccer ball close by to make sure no one takes it away from him. He is extremely playful and has some awesome skills that would make any soccer player jealous.
This comes to show that all cats are playful creatures, no matter their size. Sure, the lion might be the king of the jungle, but that doesn’t mean they don’t enjoy playing much like a domesticated cat would.
Triton’s reaction when the zoo caretaker throws him the ball speaks for itself. Take a look and don’t forget to share!
