Lions Play Soccer at the Zoo in Honor of 2018 World Cup
It was a much slower-paced game.
While the 2018 World Cup is in full swing, lions at an Israeli zoo are enjoying their own game of soccer.
Zookeepers at Israel’s Ramat Gan Safari gave the lions and lioness their very own soccer ball to celebrate the start of the World Cup in Russia.
Their game seemed a tad bit slower, with long resting breaks and plenty of lounging around, however.
Lioness Samburu, 8, appeared to enjoy kicking and chasing the ball, despite the fact that the lions usually sleep for most of the day.
Although the other lions attempted to join in the game, Samburu dominated and managed to keep possession of the ball.
