A lion shakes the water from its mane - resembling a pet dog.  The male lion was soaked after a storm rained down on Mara North Conservancy in Masai Mara, Kenya.  In an attempt to dry himself off, the three-year-old male lion performed a 'lion shake' - flicking his head from side to side to remove the water droplets from its mane.<br />

The technique resembles a pet dog, that use the same method when they have been for a swim or had a bath.  Professional photographer Jacques-André Dupont captured the shake during a seven day trip to Kenya.   SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
