Lion Tamer Alex Larenty

***EXCLUSIVE***
JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 31
: Trainer Alex Larenty gives Jamu the Lion a foot massage at the Lion Park on May 31, 2010 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Casting a spectacular image Jamu the nine-year-old male lion enjoys his favourite game 'This Little Piggy' with fearless handler, Brit Alex Larenty, 50, from Chipping Norton. Caught on camera in sunny South Africa last week, 250kg Jamu looks like the cat who got the cream as he casually lies back and lets his keeper massage his gigantic paw. Alex, who emigrated to South Africa, is able to get incredibly close to the big cats he works with at The Lion Park near Johannesburg, through complete mutual trust. Having reared many from birth, he is able safely to walk into the middle of colossal Jamu's pride and play games while surrounded by huge numbers of the massive predators. While a stranger trying the same thing would end up as lunch for the animals, Alex uses his unique relationship to get close to the big cats he loves. He said: "I built up a relationship with Jamu through putting insect repellent onto him, which is necessary here to keep our animals protected from things like parasites. He eventually realised he liked being scratched and tickled and now his favourite game is 'This Little Piggy'. He loves it'." Alex is offering his masseuse services to England's lions - the national football team - who travelled to the country on June3 for the 2010 World Cup.
