  1. 2:00 "Johann Gottlieb Kirchner tries to give all his animals a sort of human look." I'd agree with that. But then at 2:06 Dr. Evans says, "there's a baleful look. There's an arrogance. You can see the eyelid is raised." I disagree with that. I would describe the Lion's expression as either sheepish, worried, shy, self-conscious, or pleading. He looks the way a dog does when you've caught them doing something they know you don't like them doing. Or perhaps the way an animal does when it sees you approaching and is worried about what your intentions are. He's a very humble lion.
