Some Lion This!

Post by jones jones »

This is alleged to be a lion … King of the jungle!

It seems that in 1731 the King of Sweden was presented with a lion as a gift. He so loved the beast that when it died he had it stuffed. The problem was that the taxidermist was only given the bones and skin and apparently had never seen a lion before.

Looks a little cross-eyed to me.

Well he did his best poor chap!

Shear Farm, one of Shropshire's beautiful old farm houses dating from the 15th century.

I could live here!

Poor little lion . I have a friend who has birds behind glass ...It's time to get them restuffed they not only look dead but almost like they've been run over . They are looking a bit worse for wear. :D

Love the waterfall pic.
