The Lion That Plays Football

The Lion That Plays Football


AGNES: I’m Agnes Mululeke, the curator at Johannesburg Zoo, I’m in charge of carnivore
section. So I am looking after all the big and hairy and scary animals. AGNES: Triton is our male white lion, he’s pure white, he’s not a carrier of Tony coloured
genes, he was bred here in Johannesburg Zoo and hand raised by one of the keepers about
ten or eleven years ago. And he likes playing soccer. AGNES: “Come Triton!” AGNES: You’ll hardly see the lions doing anything but once you throw a ball into Triton’s enclosure,
he goes crazy chasing the ball around the enclosure. AGNES: I think all soccer players can come and learn a thing or two from Triton because
he’s the best soccer player up to so far.
