You Can Now Get Locked In A Cage In A Field Of Hungry Lions And Nope

You Can Now Get Locked In A Cage In A Field Of Hungry Lions And Nope

We've just discovered the on-land version of shark cage diving and is still a resounding HELL NO from us.

Non-profit organisation, GG conservation, have manufactured a perspex cage which brave photographers can enter to capture incredible images of lions.

The organisation, which protects lions which have been rescued in and around Harrismith, South Africa, was looking for a way to fund their efforts when they came up with the idea.

Inside, photographers can observe the majestic beasts while taking photos from tantalising closeness.

Carefully placed bars and holes allow the entrants to get within inches of the lions, as the fascinated animals crawl and sprawl all over the structure.

Some of the first punters (which you can seen in the video above) were greeted by male and female lions who bared their fearsome jaws for the cameras and clawed away at the cage.

Let's hope this thing is made of sturdy stuff.

"The reason for the cage was to be able to make an income to enable us to keep the GG lions healthy, safe and protected in our lion sanctuary," said Suzanne, a volunteer at GG conservation.

"We thought that if we had a professional photography cage we could attract more professional photographers here.

"The lions in the videos are extremely curious of the cage. All cats, big or small, love a box and they can choose to come close to the box or not it's their choice!

"Its a completely new way to see lions, from a totally different perspective, and also from a different angle, especially when one is sat on the plexiglass above you."

As a concept, lion cages are pretty similar to shark diving cages, the underwater activity which has become a hit with thrill-seeking tourists.

We wonder if these will catch on in the same way?

Either way, it's interesting idea but we'd like to keep our lives thank you.
