Kevin Richardson, a zoologist and animal behaviorist, has raised and trained some of the most dangerous animals known to man. The kind of animals most people come to see on African wildlife safaris are what Kevin refers to as his playmates.
To do this he does not use the common methods of breaking the animal’s spirit with sticks and chains, instead he uses love, understanding and trust. With this unusual method of training he has developed some exceptionally personal bonds with his students. He sleeps with lions, cuddles newborn hyenas, and swims with lionesses.
