Were you the front or the back? I think the front would be harder to do.

we change, nothing is ever solid. You never notice (you're not supposed to), but front and back will change throughout the performance, depending on needs of the trick, and the tiredness of the performers.

Back is actually harder, because you have to be active while leaning over (not good for your back, per se), and you're usually the base for the guy in the head for those stand up routines. Perhaps you could be lazy and just move your feet a little, but even if you're standing still, back guy should shake his ass like crazy and change poses... all to show strength and energy of the lion.

Front is not necessarily harder... but it is a lot more fun! but your arms might get tired after more than 10-20 minutes of it.

The overall action of shedding skin, hair, or feathers is called "molting."

lol okay... for some reason i was thinking that molting only applied to feathers
and of course, cats and dogs shed...
snakes don't get their own word :P

Haha, no, none than the occassional hitting the ceiling with the head... but that happens a lot.

One time my tail recollected he thought I was going to fall in the water, as we were on a stage and there was a sort of decorative pond in front of us. I got up on one leg, started throwing kicks in the direction of the crowd. Apparently my balance looked off to my partner so he kept his hand ready to grab me by the belt. But setting the foot down after each kick is unimpressive.

On a different fountain, I had jumped on the ledge and walked around it. Apparently (again, i didn't notice) my foot slipped and dipped in the water just a little bit. . . so it looked like the lion had dipped his toe in the water and did not like it at all (and jumping away).
