“Nature’s Tense Moment: Young Buffalo’s Miraculous Evasion of a Cunning Leopard”


The clip was recorded in the Kruger National Reserve, South Africa.

Specifically, while wandering in search of food, a herd of wild buffaloes caught the eye of a male lion. As soon as he realized that the opportunity had come, the hunter immediately pursued and tried to kill a calf.

Witnessing the scene where the calf is falling to the door of death, an adult buffalo immediately rushed forward, knocking the hunter to rescue his fellow. Stunned by the opponent’s attack, the lion can only leave its prey and immediately run away.

However, the adult buffalo still did not let go of the lion. It angrily chased after the hunter, used its sharp horns to ram the lion’s body and then lifted it into the air. Fortunately, the lion was still able to get up and quickly ran away to save his life.


The lion is one of the most feared carnivores across the grasslands of Africa. Thanks to their superior strength, plus possessing sharp teeth and claws, they can defeat many other animals for food. The fastest way to kill prey that African lions often use is to attack the respiratory system of the prey, bite or tear the throat.

In fact, buffalo is not an easy creature to bully in Africa. If a lion hunts alone and subjectively, it is completely possible to be seriously injured, even die. Therefore, when hunting wild buffalo, lions often follow the herd, choosing the lone, or weakest one to be easily slaughtered. However, if the buffalo herd gathered together to protest, things would become much more difficult.
