Its stories like this that really are incredible. I know its been around for a while, but I never saw it before. A couple raised a lion cub in the UK and eventually he got too big to handle so they brought Christian back to Africa. A year later they visited him even though there was a great chance that he would haveforgotten themand not been very kind since he lived in the wild and all, but surprisingly he remembered them. The affection he showed was pretty remarkable. Heres more on the story. Christian, the lion who lived in my London living room

Christian stared at us in a very intense way, says Rendall. I knew his expressions and I could see he was interested. We called him and he stood up and started to walk towards us very slowly.

Then, as if he had become convinced it was us, he ran towards us, threw himself on to us, knocked us over, knocked George over and hugged us, like he used to, with his paws on our shoulders.Everyone was crying. We were crying, George was crying, even the lion was nearly crying.read on

1. If it weren't for the Whitney it would be "Incredibly Awesome".
With the Whitney, it's just "nice".
