Triton, a lion at the Johannesburg Zoo in South Africa, has a hidden talent.
According to Agnes Maluleke, a zookeeper at the Johannesburg Zoo, there is one toy that Triton clearly favors — his trusty soccer ball. In the video below, Maluleke tosses the soccer ball into Triton’s enclosure, much to the majestic animal’s delight.
Triton takes to the ball with great gusto, chasing it around his enclosure — even diving after it when it rolled into the water — with impressive dribbling skills. Maluleke jokes, “I think all soccer players can come and learn a thing or two from Triton, because he’s the best soccer player.”
