At the Taigan Safari Park in Crimea, Filya the lion has a unique manner of greeting tourists. The 2-year-old beast still believes he’s an adorable little cub and insists on receiving a large dosage of attention from every person he encounters! Needless to say, his clinging actions usually catch tourists off guard!
Filya’s charming goal to get to know everyone on the tourist safari jeep traveling by him is depicted in this footage. He leaps at the automobile, shooing the driver away and claiming the steering wheel, before hugging and nuzzling the new people. He is completely oblivious to his size and asks every visitor to pet him like a dog!
The visitors are first alarmed to discover that they have been cornered by a massive predator. They ultimately warm up to him after sensing his naïve longing for connection. Filya is ecstatic in seconds, licking and rubbing the tourists’ faces like a devoted pet! When it comes to obtaining what he wants, it appears that the king of the jungle is pretty particular!
The driver had to take the lovable Filya away in his arms like a child since he won’t leave the visitors alone! The lion eventually exits the vehicle and prepares to bid his new buddies farewell. The poor animal, on the other hand, appears to be really upset as the automobile pulls away from his cage. He’s such a darling, and he’s so gorgeous!
Watch Filya hop aboard the safari car to snuggle and hang out with his new friends in the video below!
