Animal lover Regina Hoffmann is a real life Lion Queen after bringing up 50 big cats at her home.
The 53-year-old is always the one called on to look after the beasts if they're rejected by their mothers at a safari park in Hodenhagen, Germany.
And not just lions have been reared by Regina, 53, but also other big cats including tiger cubs and baby panthers.
She said: "I take them home and hand rear them until they are strong enough to return to their enclosures."
But despite the fact the animals have a reputation as natural born killers, Regina says they barely differ to domesticated cats.
She said: "They are playful and meow when they want something just like normal cats.
"The only difference is that instead of Whiskas they eat up to six kilos of raw meat each every day, which makes shopping quite expensive."
