Shadows on the wall

A few nights ago, I was changing Natalie on her changing table. She noticed my shadow on the wall and wanted it to go away. So I showed her that it was just my shadow, and then I showed her how to make shadow animals. First, I made the traditional bunny. Natalie seemed interested, so I made a flying bird. Now, these two are the only ones I actually know how to make - that is really the limit of my shadow-animal-making-capabilities. But then, Natalie said "Make lion!" Hmm, anyone know how to do that?

I actually succeded in making something that with a little imagination could pass for a lion. Of course, I thought it looked more like a reindeer, but Natalie insisted "No, that not be reindeer, that be lion!"
