    Rihanna took a walk on the wild side over the weekend—literally. Before the "Pour It Up" performed at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Sunday, Oct. 13, she visited a local animal sanctuary. While there, the 25-year-old Barbadian beauty bonded with a lion cub and a baby giraffe.

    Wearing an oversized graphic tee and camouflage boots, Rihanna cuddled with the ferocious feline and fed the long-necked ruminant. She shared several pictures (taken by photographers Gomillion and Leupold) via her Instagram account and wrote "Mama AfRIHca!!!" in multiple captions.
