Ugas was certainly one of the sweetest and most friendly of the many lions.
In the movie Born Free, Ugas starred with Lioness Girl in the 'courting scene'.
Ugas laid under a tree looking handsome while Girl flirted with him.

In a message written in February 2005 Virginia McKenna(Star of the movie Born Free) made this comment regarding her dear friend George Adamson  "....No-one who met George could fail to have been inspired and touched by this remarkable man."

The Christian Science Monitor wrote,
NO one better knew the language and lives of lions  -  or loved them more - than George Adamson.
....Few scientists took him seriously. But friends say many scientists would have been humbled by sitting at the table of a man who sensed nature as a living whole, rather than only a subject to study.
