Updated: 11 August, 2017 21:56 IST

On the occasion of World Lion Day, three Asiatic lionesses were filmed playing around a scented boomer ball at the ZSL London Zoo. The ball was scented with the pride's favourite aromatic herbs and spices with which they played in both water and on land. The metre-wide ball is made specifically for big, strong animals to play with and this version was designed to replicate the globe. World Lion Day is an independent campaign to highlight the importance of lions globally and raise awareness about the conservation of lions worldwide.
