Ken and Dixie’s Bite Club

An African lion’s life is typically all about sleeping, napping and resting… but that isn’t necessarily true for the Safari Park’s Lion Camp rock stars. Ken and Dixie managed to start a secret Bite Club in their spare time. Keep reading for the official rules.

The 1st rule of Bite Club is, you don’t talk about Bite Club.

If a cub taps out or keepers call for lunch, the bite is over.

Two cubs to a bite.

No paws, no cheap shots.

Bites will go on as long as they have to.

No enrichment or outside items.


If this is your first time at Bite Club, you have to bite.
