The Lion Whisperer

Kevin Richardson is an animal expert who has such an intimate bond with lions that he can spend the night curled up with them without the slightest fear of attack. Cheetahs, leopards, and even unpredictable hyenas also hold no threats for him.

He lavishes them with unconditional love, he says, treating each individual differently, speaking to them, caressing them and above all, treating them with respect.

In other words, he's paying attention to each and every animal as an individual. And they do the same to him.

Here's a short and touching video. Also check out the pictures of him with lions on this page:
