Thomas Chipperfield's lions and tigers relax backstage at the circus

Tsavo, named after a place in Kenya where the lions are
said to grow especially big, relaxes before the show

...and born show off that he is, puts on a show with
one eye on the camera

Circus with a bite
Tsavo leaves his living quarters
For more pictures that I took backstage at Peter Jolly's Circus, click here.
