    Be sure to go to Snopes to get 'the rest of the story' after you watch the video. Very interesting!!!

    'Snopes' says this is true - it's unbelievable!

    I just watched a second time and realized those were two GUYS. I thought one was a woman. Still teary eyed, though.

    It IS a true story. I remember reading the book when it first came out and I think I remember seeing a TV documentary? Not sure...

    And the female-looking bloke with long hair was fairly typical for the times back then.

    1st I want to know how much is 250 Guineas in American???

    Then I want to hug both those men for doing the right thing with a mighty lion. See? You can turn out okay if you are raised by two same sex parents. Lion even got a wife.

    If you take some time to read and look through the photos of this man who took Christian...it's amazing. I would SOOO love to meet this person, although he has passed. What an incredible life that you do something that you are passionate about.

    Ok, I'm obsessed with this now. I just ordered Born Free from the Library, but they don't have the Christian the Lion. They have it on Ebay and Amazon for $15, though. I'll think about it.
  14. How heartwarming!
