On the way home last week my 2.5 year old declared that lions hang upside down under water.  I told him that I didn't think that was true, but he immediately said it was.  This was one of those times where I realized he was confident in his statement and any attempt to make a reasonable argument would be met with steely resolve.  

The more I thought about it, however, the more I liked the idea of a lion hanging upside down in the water.  I decided to draw a picture, first on a napkin and then a fancier illustration.  Here is the result (click to see full picture):

 I like to paint, draw, and illustrate, but it's hard to find inspiration.  I now have a new muse, my little boy.  There will never be a shortage of great ideas!

So, I'm curious - how would you explain this picture?
