This Lion's Hidden Talent Will Actually Amaze You

Fact: He can also bend it like Beckham.

Lounging around in the Johannesburg Zoo is far from exhilarating for the Triton, the 100-year-old lion, but a secret skill recently discovered by zoo staff may make life as a captive animal a little less dull.

Nothing else is worth acknowledging when he's got his soccer ball. Dribbling around his living space with his paws and mouth, Triton shows off his stuff for his companion lions and visitors alike. Don't act like you're not impressed.
