TOPSHOTS-KENYA-WILDLIFE-FELINE-CHRISTMAS

 

A seven month old male Lion cub christened 'Godfrey' pawing at the camera in his enclosure on December 14, 2010 at the Nairobi animal orphanage during a pre-Christmas-party for the wild-cats in captivity who were visited by their ''adoptive-parents,'' corporates and individuals who contribute funds annually for the upkeep of the mostly orphaned cats. Africa's big-cat populations, especially Lion and Leopard have been especially prone to human activity including cultivation, pastoralism and development as well as a growing trade in animal parts in the last few decades and authorities are just now scrabling to salvage their rapidly declining numbers.      TONY KARUMBA/AFP/Getty Images
