Triton the Soccer Playing Lion Is the New David Beckham [VIDEO]

Like most lions, Triton spends most of his day either napping or gnawing on some tasty meat.

But when this 11-year-old resident of the Johannesburg, South Africa zoo has a soccer ball tossed his way, he suddenly becomes a whirling dervish of activity. Who knew a lion could bend it like Beckham?

As you can see in the video below, Triton’s paw work is quite impressive. While we’d like to see how he would do against a human soccer player, we doubt we could find anyone who’d be willing to get into Triton’s enclosure and challenge the beast.

Watch Triton in action below.
