This is not a real lion's mug but rather an animatronic lion mask with stereo night vision and amplified hearing. Want your own? Over at Instructables, Solion posted his detailed HOWTO on making the mask. Instructables co-founder Eric Wilhelm tells me that this is the first project on the site that has more than 100 steps. Solion has also made a wolf and bear using the same kind of animatronics. Dig the demo videos at the end, step #117. Wow!
