Due to the high humidity, a lion in a Chinese zoo suddenly appears new hairstyle making visitors admire it.
Hang Hang’s fringe became frizzy due to the moisture in the air, giving the impression that he was more like a Tiger King than a Lion King due to his golden locks.
The lion’s strangely straightened look for hairstyle, which is evocative of tennis player Andre Agassi in the 1990s, was created, according to zookeepers, by the feline licking his paws and brushing his mane.
Guangzhou Zoo visitors who saw Hang Hang initially believed his hair had been chopped, but keepers assured the ‘blonde supermodel’ appearance was entirely his own.
According to a zoo spokesperson, the hairstyle was entirely the work of nature. We would never think to trim the lion’s mane.
‘Due to the excessive humidity in Guangzhou, lion’s hairstyle appeared like a blonde supermodel with fringe,’ said one observer.
On May 29, pictures of Hang Hang exploring his area with a fellow lion drew more visitors, according to a keeper. He is currently the most attractive boy in the area, and more people are flocking to view him, they said.
After experiencing its coldest temperature of 13.7C (56.66F) earlier this month, Guangzhou, a city in South China, experienced temperatures climb to 32C (89.6F) on Sunday and hit 89 percent humidity. It comes as news broke last month that a record-breaking heat wave has left more than a billion people in south Asia “gasping in any shade they find.”
Pakistan saw its hottest March in 61 years in March, which caused temperatures in northern India and Pakistan, which border China, to soar to 47C (116.6F). The Guardian reported last week that Jacobabad, a city in Pakistan, reached 51C (123.8F).
Pakistan’s minister for climate change has urged local authorities to get ready for flash floods and a surge of people suffering from heatstroke in the nation’s hospitals.
Glaciers in the Himalayas, Hindu Kush, and Karakoram mountain ranges accelerated their rapid melting as a result of the heat shock. Approximately 30 glacial lakes formed by recent temperature increases are now in danger of flooding.
According to authorities, this leaves seven million people directly susceptible. According to a UN assessment released in April, during the past 20 years, there have been 350 to 500 medium- or large-scale disasters worldwide per year.
However, as long as climate change persists, the Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNODRR) anticipates that by 2030, there will be about 560 catastrophes annually.
In contrast, from 1970 to 2000, there were only 90 to 100 medium-to-large-scale disasters worldwide. If the assessment is correct, 1.5 disasters every day will occur by 2030, endangering the lives of millions of people. These disasters include fires, floods, and other risks like pandemics or chemical spills.
The paper noted that humans had made judgments that are too narrowly focused and overly optimistic about the likelihood of possible disasters, leaving them unprepared, and that climate change is producing more extreme weather events.
The impact of disasters has also been exacerbated by population growth in regions more vulnerable to natural disasters. The largest hazard appears to be the combination of rising temperatures and an increase in heatwave frequency.
According to the report’s projections based on previous and projected trends, there would be 30% more droughts and three times as many extreme heat waves in 2030 as there were in 2001.
