The instinct to play is there in all animals domestic and wild. Some animals are particularly fond of playing with a ball. While we may all be familiar with our pet dogs or cats that go crazy when they see a ball, how about a mighty lion? In the video clip, you’ll see that the big cat knows his games too.

It looks like this lion was born to play football. The video shows him performing all the basic soccer skills and moves. Perhaps, if he was more acrobatic, we could’ve ever expected a scissor kick from him. Nonetheless, watching him roll the ball over, splashing in the water is a treat in itself.

His mane bounces up and down as he chases down the black and white ball. When it goes in the water, he breaks all cat rules and hops right in.
