Kevin Richardson (born 8 October 1974), known as "The Lion Whisperer",is a South African animal behaviourist who has worked extensively with native animals of Africa.(...)
(...) Richardson has worked with big cats and relies on intuition rather than static rules. He has slept next to, fed, and lived with lions. Along with lions, he has worked with cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas. He prefers lions to any other big cat. His relationship with the animals, however, has not been an instant one. He has known all of the lions he works with since they were cubs. He still continues his bond with Tau and Napoleon, the lion brothers who were his introduction to big cats.
