Curious Lion Cubs Investigate a Remote Control Car With GoPro Camera That Drives Up To Them

Curious lion cubs aren’t sure what to make of a remote control car with a GoPro Camera that was driven up to them by photographer and adventurer Chris Bray.

While running one of our five 2-week photo safaris to Kenya in 2014, we attached a GoPro camera to a remote control car and drove it up to a lioness with cubs, stopping at a distance where they still showed no interest, and then jiggled the car around just enough to invoke the cubs curiosity. Two of the three cubs then came over and investigated it for 20min, before growing bored and tired and falling asleep back with mum.
