Sleeping

Recently, a lion thought he would sneak up on a sleeping lioness to possibly mate with her but he got is so wrong and she came in swinging.

 

Maasai Mara, Kenya – We have all been rudely woken up in our lives and been thoroughly annoyed with the person or thing (we hear you Hadidas!) who was responsible.

Latest Sighting shared a video of a lion stealthily creeping up on a sleeping lioness. It didn’t end well for the lion.

Joshua Loonkushu, a safari guide was on an evening game drive near sand river when they came across the incredible sighting. The day before a pride of lions had taken down a wildebeest and he wanted to see how things were the next day.

“On the previous day, we had spotted this pride of lions that had just killed a wildebeest within the banks of the Sand River in Maasai Mara. I decided to head over there the next day to try and track them down. Luckily I managed to find them!

In the beginning, I couldn’t imagine that the male lion was going to behave like this! He got up and kept on creeping towards the lioness, almost stalking. He was taking all effort to keep as silent as possible. I told my guests that we are up to something quite interesting here.

As he got to the lioness, he bit her! It took the lioness exactly 2 split seconds to go from fast asleep to be in defense mode and ready to attack!

Soon after this scuffle, the rest of the pride joined the two, hugging them as if they were asking what was the matter?!”

Joshua said it is the first sighting of this kind he has ever had in his 8-year career.

“I’ve never seen something like this, and if someone else comes across a great sighting like this, I say share it with the world!”

Take a look at the hair raising moment below. The lesson here is, next time you see your lady sleeping peacefully, don’t sneak up on her and bite her…
