Face to face with a lion – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…..” The secret of success and a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings”.

”  Men stumble over pebbles, never over mountains”.

Did you know that an ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain?   Or did you know that the Hawaiian alphabet only has 12 letters?  Or that the word ‘dreamt’  is the only word to end in ‘mt’ ?   Or did you know that the word ‘stewardesses’  is the longest word that is typed with only the left hand?  Or that koalas sleep around 18 hours a day?   Or that the original name for Australia was New Holland?   And that the average human brain contains about 78% water?

A different sort of portrait for today’s photo and face to face with an African lion.  After tigers, lions are the second biggest members of the cat family, with an average male weighing 180kg (females 130kg).  They can sprint up to 80km/h but only for short periods,  Average lifespan is about 12 years.   They spend about 18 hours a day resting, and hunt mainly at night.   This one was seen in Zambia.
