While visiting Botswana’s Modisa Wildlife Project, adventurer JHawk Daily watched his friend Val say good morning to a young lion in the best possible way – with a huge hug. And yes, Val lived to see another day.
Ian Matheson and his son Oliver were in Africa’s Mjejane Reserve when they stumbled onto a buffalo rescuing another from a lion attack by flipping the predator into the air. Apparently, all of the animals walked away unscathed.
Bird lovers look away. There’s a reason they keep the bird pavilion separate from the lion habitat at the zoo, as is evidenced by this footage of a heron who ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time.
