This week a curious lions tried to open the door of a tourists car in the Kruger National Park.
You might not always be fortunate enough to see lions walking in the road in the Kruger as they might be sleeping under some thick bushes, but these Kruger visitors got lucky enough to see them interacting with a car in this manner.
This young male was walking in the road with a group made up of 6 other lions when a car caught his attention and he decided to investigate it thoroughly. The lion started out by sniffing the car first before he tried to open the door with his jaw.
The car caught the lions attention because he probably saw his own reflections and he wasn’t sure if it was him or another lion and another theory is because he smelled another lions scent on the car.

This was not the first time that a car caught animals attention in the Kruger and it certainly won’t be the last time.
