Where's Wally moment for Longleat lioness with a head for height's.<br />
<br />
The big cat, called Kiama, seemed more like a mountain lion after climbing 50ft up a the tree in her wooded enclosure at Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire.<br />
<br />
Her keepers say the eight-year-old is a keen climber but hey have never known her to venture so far off the ground before.<br />
<br />
Remarkable photos show Kiama sat on a branch in the canopy of the 65ft tall sycamore tree.<br />
<br />
Another startling image depicts the nerveless big cat seemingly defying gravity by walking down the vertical trunk of the huge tree.
