Paper No. 336 Lateral Implications of my Physiology on Lions and Bulls!
Frank P Russo –
The general linguistic meaning for a “roar” or “to roar” is the noise made by beasts: a sort of high energy vocal gurgling, of sorts - the usual examples often include lions and bulls!
Now having first-hand experience with the expulsion of accumulated carbon dioxide, I know that when having eaten some high energy food: the result is a very loud roar like a lion – as opposed to normally “burping”!
I am led to almost conclude, that especially lions and bulls might actually be “temperature-dependant” animals! They are both held as superlative examples of strength and power … these sterling animals are actually envisioned as two of “the four living creatures” around the throne of God in Revelation … (or at least their ‘heads’ are represented!)
By the way, Daniel’s experience with lions was real: Darius could not ‘revoke’ the ‘law’, but could have made sure, that the lions would have had a massive banquet, and then introduced his friend Daniel: whilst the ‘poor’ beasts all had indigestion!
P.s.- Perhaps the lions’ manes are like our beards - pubic-hairs with their roots being testosterone sensitive - after-all, they don’t actually get their full mane till about 5 years of age: possibly at their adult-maturation-age.
