Lioness Eye Surgery Is No Simple Task

They don't call Kevin Richardson "The Lion Whisperer" for nothing, though, because he immediately notices something's wrong with his lioness friend Naiobi's eye.

It takes several months to bring Naiobi from diagnosis and surgery to recovery, but we get a front-row seat thanks to Kevin's revealing vlogs.
