IamA Kevin Richardson, The Lion Whisperer. AMA!
Hello, I am Kevin Richardson – my fans call me The Lion Whisperer. I’ve been working hands-on with big cats for 17 years. My method of approaching wildlife allows me to develop close, personal, and physical relationships with lions, leopards, hyenas, and other predators. I reject the idea of “breaking an animal’s spirit” – instead I use love, understanding, and trust to develop relationships with animals, and I treat them as individuals. I have made many documentaries about wildlife in my career. My next show is a 2-part series called Killer IQ: Lions vs. Hyena, premiering tonight at 8 PM on Smithsonian Channel in the US.
Changing people’s minds about these remarkable animals and the challenges they face is one of my passions. Ask me anything!
