A lion brought a whole new meaning to the word ‘catwalk’ when he was pictured stepping out in the glistening snow, majestic mane blowing in the wind.

The photogenic feline, called Tom, five, posed wide-eyed with his locks tousled and sprawled out next to some pine branches.

He also cuddled up to a tree stump, golden fur catching the sun as the king of the jungle – or in this case, of the Zoopark Na Hrádečku in Czech Republic – sauntered around.

The stunning snaps were captured by  amateur photographer Robert Grim, 51, from Prague. 

He said the creature, who after being rescued from illegal practices can now roam around in a ‘huge space’ at the zoo, looked like he had just stepped out of the salon. 

Mr Grim said: ‘The lion’s name is Tom and he looks like he just came from the barbershop.

‘Tom and his brother Leo were rescued from a very bad and illegal environment. In this park, they have a huge space and they are doing really well.

‘This lion is going to celebrate his 6th birthday with his brother in May 2022.’ 

He also cuddled up to a tree stump, golden fur catching the sun as the king of the jungle - or in this case, of the Zoopark Na Hrádečku - sauntered around.

The pair of lions often feature on the zoo’s social media channels. In 2020 for World Lion Day on August 10, Zoopark Na Hrádečku treated Tom and Leo to toys with some meat hidden in them.

On its website Zoopark Na Hrádečku says it participates in conservation projects and cooperates with zoos across Europe.

It adds: ‘We participate in conservation projects. We try to educate the general public on nature conservation issues, for example through guided tours. We are also involved in legislative changes that concern animal protection.’
