This male lion looks died more than sleeping. There are many flies on him.

I thought the lyrics where the lion sleeps tonight! ha...this one sleeps all day it looks like...just like a retired guy....

Hi Vic
I guess they can do what they what when they want to do it. Guess you don't bother a sleeping lion. Well captured. Are those black specks flys?
