Big Cats Discover Watermelon For The First Time And They Love It!

How do Lions, Tigers, Leopards and Cougars like to eat watermelons? Watch this video to find out! Every summer at the Big Cat Rescue sanctuary they hand out watermelons to the cats that live there as enrichment. Watch as some of the cats love to play with the watermelon and some actually enjoy to eating it as well!

Some fun commentary:
As you can see, the beautiful white loin is hunting its prey— watermelon.
Watermelons live in a variety of habitats, ranging from treetops to ponds, and are mostly defenseless to the big cats. But they do have one defense, which is their tough shell and unappetizing red insides.
Surprisingly, cats like the color red, as seen with house cats and their relationship with the red dot.
The white loin sneaks up on the unsuspecting prey, slowly coming towards its hard, grass-like exterior. The lion charges— and boom, with a gaping mouth, the lion snaps the melon in half.
