There is a unique way that Filya the lion greets people at the Taigan Safari Park in Crimea. The two-year-old animal is insistent on getting lots of love and attention from everyone he meets! It goes without saying that his clinging habits often surprise visitors!
See how Filya tries to make friends with everyone in the tourist safari car that drives by him in this movie. He jumped at the car and pushed the driver away while claiming the steering wheel. Then he greeted the new people with hugs and kisses. He wants everyone who comes to visit to pet him like a dog and doesn’t seem to care about how big he is!
At first, the guests are scared when they see that a huge animal has trapped them. But they quickly become friends with him because they see how innocently he wants to be friends. With no time at all, Filya is happily petting the guests’ faces like a loving pet. We can see that the jungle king is very picky about what he wants.
The driver had to pull the cute Filya away from the guests because he wouldn’t leave on his own. The lion finally gets out of the car and gets ready to say goodbye to his new friends. The poor animal does look very sad as the car pulls away from its cage, though. He’s really cute and beautiful!
