Zoologist Kevin Richardson has the life you wish you had. Everyone knows that lions are dangerous, but they are also big and cuddly and we would give our left nad to hug one and not have it maul us to death. For GoPro's Hero3+ Adventure Series, Richardson (aka "The Lion Whisperer) takes viewers into his world and provides a unique first-person perspective using the lighter GoPro camera while he talks about the threats to their habitat. You won't get shots like this from National Geographic or some other nature programming that uses drones and rigs to get close-ups. Watch as Richardson hugs and plays with ten-year-old lions and hyenas in South Africa like they are his children, it is maybe the sweetest thing you'll see all year.
