My theory is that they would be able to break it. I'd never let a lion paw the car window like that -
and there were occasions when it could have happened. We drove off before they got a chance O**
God put me on earth to accomplish a certain amount of things. Right now I'm so far behind that I'll never die.

What an idiot 0*\
Why did he allow the lion to gnaw away at parts of his car?!?!? He should have moved away.
By allowing the lion to do as it pleases, he is "teaching" the habit

Hopefully they outgrow the phase...seems to be learned behaviour, like the Vurhami tree climbers! :-0

After all it is their home ;-)

I don't think that it's the rubber, more likely smells attached from whatever the tyres have been passing through ;-)
