Day 235- the Zoo (part 8)

The last (and perhaps) cutest picture of the lion cubs, and a small anecdote-

Leaning over the cubs enclosure to get a good photo I threw away (dropped) my lens cap. Fumbled into the lions den. I contemplated reaching over to get it, but was worried their cute, mesmeric, eyes might betray sharp, inquisitive, teeth. I wasn’t keen on loosing a finger so I asked zoo keeper, in the best Japanese I could muster (gestures). She retrieved it for me, welcomed by excited cuddles and playful swipes rather than a vicious mauling. A lack of curiosity spoilt my chance to stoke a cat.
