    Default Literally playing with the lion's whiskers!

    This little terrapin is a curious bugger and the lions seem rather non plussed but strangely not too upset!

    Awesome video...

    Could see the male lion was getting irritated there at the end.

    Looks like they had just been feeding, maybe a reason why they didn't opt for that quick snack...

    I have seen these terrapins eating ticks off buffalo and zebra wading into a waterhole to drink. The ox-peckers of the water.

    I will think of these lions the next time I have small irritations trying to spoil my mood while I quench my thirst.

    they are so chill- I would love to hear a Aussie man review on this video.

    Same as people at a braai.
