Who’s the king of the jungle?
Of course, Simba is the lion king!
Except that lions don’t live in the jungle. They live in the grasslands.
So who rules the jungle?
Many people feel tigers are stronger and more agile than lions. Supposedly Roman Emperor Titus would pit Bengal tigers against African lions. The tigers always won.
So what led to the death of the tiger king?
Stories created by Disney and our culture have planted the idea of the powerful lion into our hearts and mind. Does the Nemean lion of Hercules, Daniel and the lions’ den from the Bible, or King Arthur’s symbol of courage ring a bell?
What stories do we tell ourselves that might be based on false assumptions?
Thanks for caring!
