Nice topic,

We are talking about REAL lions here, not like the scrawny kitties in Kruger :tongue:

(Not my video)

Was quite a scare!
Hi Charl28, I am the filmer of that video. I was wondering why you didn,t started your car. The young Lion was in shock as much as you were. But.... it is a nice piece of film and it was a beautiful morning. In this video, you see the same Lions but a bit earlyer that morning.

This is Big Daddy from Nossob. He is the leader of the Lions in the two other video,s from above. An amazing Lionpride. 8)
