The coronavirus has completely changed the lives of everyone in the world. From school closings to businesses struggling to survive, it’s become a bizarre world that we’ve been forced to adapt to.
Even though it can be scary to truly think about what’s going on, there are actually some good things happening because of events related to the virus outbreak. From clearer waters and overall air quality, Mother Nature is healing because of the lockdowns. Lions seem to also be adjusting well to the lockdowns.
Park Ranger and photographer Richard Sowry tweeted the following:
He also included photos of the lions relaxing and lounging on the side of the road in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.
Normally, the park would be packed with tourists so the lions lying in the road wouldn’t be possible because of the traffic.
Kruger park has been shut down since March 25th and part of the nationwide lockdown in South Africa.
Kruger media officer Isaac Phaala said they liked the road because it was dry.
And of course, the internet had a lot to say about this:

He also told the BBC that the lions, which usually sleep in the bushes, are “very smart and now they are enjoying the freedom of the park without us.”
