“Zebra’s Daring Defense: A Spectacular Escape from Lion’s Pursuit”


While wandering foraging in the grasslands, the zebras were caught by a lioness. Realizing this was an opportunity to get himself a delicious meal, the hunter decided to rush out in pursuit.

Its target this time is a baby zebra. However, when attacking the prey, the lion was resisted by the zebra cub with a strong back kick. After receiving a “heavenly” kick in the face, the lion had to give up chasing its prey.

In the world of wildlife, lions are one of the most notorious predators. Thanks to their inherent strength, plus sharp teeth and claws, they often hunt and kill large animals such as wild buffalo, wildebeest, wild boar, zebra… for food.

Although the zebra is the lion’s favorite prey, it is also a prey that it is not easy to catch. Not only that, zebras also have an extremely effective self-defense weapon when running, which is a blow from heaven that can make any carnivore beware.


According to the calculations of biologists, despite being in the same horse family, the kick of a zebra compared to a horse is usually much stronger. This force of impact is enough to break the jaws of a crocodile, lion or some common African hunter.

In fact, it has been recorded that a zebra can kill a male African lion weighing 280 kg with a single kick to the body.
