HANDSOME lion wrangler Shandor Larenty is so busy with his lions and hyenas – who like to give him kisses – has no time for romantic relationships with girls. While his friends were out partying and enjoying their teens, the dedicated 24-year-old was working night shifts at The Lion Park near Johannesburg, South Africa, mucking out hyenas, watching over sick lions, or doing special night feeds with injured giraffes. While Shandor admits he’s doing his “dream job”, the work is demanding it means he has no time for a love life. Thankfully he does get affection from somewhere, but it’s usually from his furry friends at the park like Themba the hyena.

  1. Everything about this video is amazing and touching. This man has such a love for animals in protecting them and he obviously has raised a son just as genuinely caring and protective of these amazing animals we share this planet with. What genuinely awesome people these are and what a great example, of how being a terrific father and man, leading by example,a child into becoming great man as well.

  2. Hands down eyes always said if I ever got that opportunity to do something like this I will leave everything behind and do this
