lionsHow cool is this!  The Friends of the National Zoo are auctioning a chance to learn to train one of their lions.

The description reads:

Join a lion keeper for a crash course on animal training! During this special behind-the-scenes experience you will learn about operant conditioning and the importance of training the National Zoo’s lions. Afterward you will have the opportunity to observe a real live training session between one of the Zoo’s lions and their trainer. This unique experience ends with an opportunity to a try out your new skills as a trainer!

There are a lot of other things to bid for on the site – all going to support the Smithsonian institutions.  One I particularly like is the sloth bear spray painting.  Suggested value $325.


Here is the link to these and more items.
