A young lion got more than it bargained for after emerging with a water monitor lizard. The cub was sent flying through the air by a buffalo apparently intent on protecting the lizard.
The encounter occurred in Kruger National Park in South Africa and was captured on video by a park regular, Sune Eloff.
“Have you ever seen a lion being thrown into the air by a buffalo, do 3 flips and then land on its feet? Now you have.”
