Shot in the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, this video is a stark reminder of why the male lion is often referred to as the “King of the Jungle.” The video shows a pride of female lions who had recently taken down a buffalo. The fresh kill attracted a swarm of hyenas and jackals to the feast, to the point that those scavengers were overwhelming the big cats. That is until the “big boy” show up. When a large male lion appears on the scene, he sends the intruders running with quite a display of ferocity.
Warning: the clip may be a bit hard to watch for some, but it is an impressive display of what happens in the animal kingdom.
