SEQUENCE 5 OF 8.
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.
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.
