When two hungry lions stumbled upon an injured buffalo all alone in the bush, they likely thought their dinner was in the bag. However, after they launched their coordinated attack, the bovine in question had a major change of fortunes.
Lions are known as the “Kings of the Jungle” for good reason. The wild cats sit proudly atop the food chain, with no natural predators except for us humans. With that in mind, the animals hunt confidently in open spaces, easily picking off their prey from one meal to the next.
In the wild, lions often feast on an array of animals including buffalo, zebra and even giraffe. They hone their skills young and are competent hunters by the age of two. The big cats typically hunt in groups, but a lone lion can take down an animal double its own size.
