Man Hugs Lion and It’s Pretty Much What We Wish We Were all Doing

So one of the cooler things that 2013 brought us was this video of zoologist Kevin Richardson hugging and wrestling lions.

The man is literally being paid to cuddle with enormous cats. Talk about a dream job, right? As an animal behaviorist, Richardson has studied this particular pride of lions for years and has slowly become part of the pride, which is no small feat. All of that aside however, even though this video shows man and ferocious beast living in adorable harmony, we’ve got to remember that for all of us non-Kevin Richardsons, hugging wild lions (or any wild animal for that matter) is a really bad idea. Still, we can watch and live vicariously through him.
