A male lion

Most of the lions we saw were female, but we did get a lot of time with this male. He was apparently quite used to these vehicles and wasn't phased by their presence. Of course, no-one went out to "check the tires" in this place. In fact he did go check them himself by pissing on the tire of one of the vehicles when he passed by. It was pretty hot out there and when lying down he was panting at a pretty good rate. We didn't offer him any water.

You can see why you wouldn't want to be in his mouth. Although he could use some whitening, I doubt if there are many dentists for lions.
