Never thought there is any kind of relationship between lion and car…
You know how the story goes: Lion falls in love with car. Lion snuggles up to car. Lion then marks this territory as his by peeing on the car door.
In the clip, which was filmed in Harrismith, South Africa, the huge man-eater is seen snuggling up to the jeep and looks to be admiring his reflection in the wing mirror.
In bizarre scenes, he then turns his back on the vehicle and pees on it, marking his territory.
The lion then resumes rubbing his impressive mane all over the side of the jeep while one of his friends watches on.
According to the person who uploaded the video the lion, who they nicknamed ‘Shane’, took a special liking to the vehicle.
‘Shane ‘loves’ our vehicle in many different ways,’ they wrote. ‘And he claims it as his own with a territorial marking!! We believe believe he is literally in love with this land cruiser.’
