In the clip shared on platform X, a buffalo is in the middle of a life-and-death struggle with two lions, one biting its neck and another biting its tail.
The buffalo fought back fiercely, using quick and flexible movements to chase away the two ferocious beasts.
After a while of effort, the animal chased the two predators away and even used its horns to deliver powerful blows.
When escaping the siege, the buffalo quickly ran towards the lake and escaped spectacularly. At this time, the two lions could only stand on the shore looking at their prey but could do nothing.
Lions are one of the most fearsome predators across the African savannah. In a pride, female lions are often in charge of hunting while male lions are responsible for protecting the herd from danger or destroying competitors.
Lions’ food is wild boar, warthog, buffalo, deer, gazelle, antelope and zebra. When hungry, lions may scavenge for leftovers from other predators such as jaguars and hyenas.
Thanks to their outstanding strength, plus their sharp teeth and claws, they can defeat many other animals for food. The fastest way to defeat prey that African lions often use is to attack the prey’s respiratory system, bite or tear the throat.
Wild buffalo are considered lions’ favorite prey. However, in reality, wild buffalo are not creatures that are easy to bully in Africa. If a lion hunts alone and subjectively, it is entirely possible that it will be seriously injured or even die. Therefore, when hunting wild buffalo, lions often follow the herd, choosing the lone or weakest animal for easy slaughter. However, if the buffalo herds gather together to protest, things will become much more difficult.
