What do lions and tigers and jaguars see when they look in the mirror? Judging by the reactions of some of these cats at Tampa's Big Cat Rescue animal sanctuary, it's something pretty scary. What exactly makes a lion jump like that? Maybe he's having a bad mane day.


I'm not sure what prompted the cat handlers to tease their kitties with mirrors for our amusement, but it's pretty interesting to watch the different reactions. The smaller cats seem to dig seeing themselves much more than the larger guys, and several cats are very curious about what the mirror is. But not that lion. Nothing is going to make him take that long hard look in the mirror.
