Adolfo is the name of this gorgeous guy. He was the first adoptive father of Kiara, the shy lioness. They spent a lot of time away, and Adolfo is concerned she won’t remember him. She came running up to Adolfo when he shouted her name. Did she remember him? She certainly did. Kiara the lion put her paws on Adolfo and caressed him in an almost human way, which is unusual for bears.
It’s heartwarming to witness how delighted the lioness is to see the guy again. It’s been claimed that animals never forget the humans they encounter, and if this video is any indication, it may be true. She then threw him to the ground and nuzzled her face in every nook and corner she could find.
Kiara seems to know the guy as soon as he enters the enclosure and behaves appropriately. Remember, Kiara is a full-grown lioness! This suggests she is more than capable of doing harm to a guy. Nonetheless, Adolfo is aware that he is not in danger!
