Filya the lion greets guests at Crimea’s Taigan Safari Park in an unusual manner. The 2-year-old beast still believes he’s an adorable little cub and insists on a lot of love from every person he encounters! Needless to say, his clinging actions usually catch visitors by surprise!
In this movie, we follow Filya in his charming endeavor to get to know everyone on the tourist safari jeep traveling with him. He leaps at the automobile and shoos the driver away, claiming the wheel before hugging and nuzzling the new people. He seems to be completely ignorant of his enormous size and wants every visitor to rub him like a dog!
The tourists are initially rattled to find themselves being cornered by a gigantic predator. But they eventually sense his innocent need for companionship and warm up to him. Within seconds, Filya is lost in bliss as he licks and rubs the tourists’ faces like a doting pet! Looks like the king of the jungle is very exacting when it comes to getting what he wants!
With the cuddly Filya refusing to leave the tourists alone, the driver has to drag him away in his arms like a kid! The lion finally steps out of the car and braces himself to say goodbye to his new friends. However, the poor thing does look super bummed as the car drives away from his enclosure. He’s such a handsome sweetheart!
