One day a trainer at the Johannesburg Zoo noticed a white lion named Triton looked bored.
The trainer decided to throw Triton a soccer ball to see if he would be interested in pushing it around.
Triton's reaction was priceless!
Triton loved the ball so much that he played with it all day around his enclosure!
The next day the same thing happened!
Triton is now the Zoo's resident soccer player!
The Zoo discovered Triton's passion for soccer right before the World Cup!
Needless to say Triton has been getting quite a few visitors thanks to his new hobby!
Good luck getting him to share his ball with any of the other lions though.
While he may to be playing on a team anytime soon, Triton has found a new love for the sport of soccer!
No more lazy days for this lion!
