The lion sleeps… King of jungle caught snoozing in a tree

HE MAY look fast asleep but this lion is actually just having a (big) catnap.

The snoozing king of the jungle was captured on camera by wildlife photographer Vince Burton in Uganda’s Queen Elizabeth National Park.

Earlier, the lion had been hanging around with a lioness and her three cubs, who wedged themselves up another tree.

Vince, 46, of North Tuddenham, Norfolk, said: ‘Unlike other big cats, lions tend to be clumsy and are not known for their tree climbing abilities. However, these have adapted to take advantage of any breeze.’
