Zookeepers have been accused of giving one lion an extremely exotic look. However, the zoo has denied giving the lion a haircut with a fringe.
The male lion, named A Hang, was brought to the zoo in 2015 from Hangzhou in eastern China’s Zhejiang province.
A zoo employee said A Hang’s hair grows naturally, and its hair was drooping because of the high humidity in Guangzhou.
“There is no hairdressing program at the zoo, and we dare not cut a lion’s hair. You can say that he has “designed’ the hairstyle himself,” they told Chinese state media Global. “Times.
“He looked like a blonde supermodel with fringe because of the high humidity in Guangzhou,” authorities told Viral Press.
Some authorities claim that the lion’s new hairstyle was due to heat and humidity, not because they took the scissors to the animal’s mane. Instead, they claim the lion groomed itself by licking its paws and then pawing its fur, which led to the straightened look amid high temperatures.
